NUSHIP Sydney, the third and final Hobart Class Destroyer (DDG) built for the Navy, on her way to her home port of Sydney for the first time.
The 147-metre long warship is arriving exactly 36 years after (to the day) since the last ship to carry the name, the guided-missile frigate HMAS Sydney IV. NUSHIP Sydney sailed from Osborne Naval Shipyard in South Australia on Monday, on her first formal voyage prior to commissioning in May.
Sydney is the most historic ship name in the history of the Navy, having won 14 battle honours.
