Ships in Jervis Bay

HMAS Leeuwin 245
In the hazy subdued afternoon light HMAS Leeuwin entered the bay.

Leeuwin enables the Australian Hydrographic Service to gather high quality hydrographic information at a much greater rate than the ships they replace. The ships are 71 metres in length, with a beam of 15 metres, and a draught of 4.3 metres. Each ship displaces 2,550 tonnes and is manned by a crew of 46 officers and sailors
