Mort Bay Park


Mort Bay is a popular park with numerous open space areas, a regional all abilities playground and great views of Sydney Harbour. Built in 1854, it was Australias first large scale dry dock. The First and Second World Wars were very busy times for Mort's three docks building minesweepers or corvettes but after the war activity declined and due to the depression in 1958 Mort's Dock and engineering closed.
