HOME OF THE LADY DENMAN - Local history isn't always about the big story - the everyday story of life in the early development of the region can be a fascinating, entertaining and educational journey.

Ideas and dreams..

Jervis Bay development.

Henry F Halloran.

Henry F Halloran had high ambitions for developing Jervis Bay. But his ideas and dreams relied heavily on the long promised railway line being built. The line was never extended, despite many years of lobbying by local business people, endless bureaucratic talk and large sums of public funds spent by succeeding governments.
I think Jervis Bay is very fortunate that nothing came of the proposals.  It has been the major reason development  stalled and the bay preserved in such a natural state.
