The wharf is now turned into luxury apartments with Russell Crowe owning the end one, it used to be the starting point for many migrants into their new country and the departure point for many soldiers going to war. The warship on the right is the HMAS Tobruk is a multipurpose troop and heavy vehicle carrier. It was first commissioned in 1981 and built in Newcastle NSW. Named after the famous World War 2 besieged city in Libya where the Australian troops assisted in holding off the German Afrikakorps.
