The HMAS Sydney Memorial

On Bradleys Head in Sydney Harbour is this memorial to HMAS Sydney, the first Australian naval vessel to engage a German ship in combat in World War One. The memorial consists of HMAS Sydney's tripod mast, mounted about one of the 19th century gun emplacements built to defend Sydney.



The mast was installed in 1934 and is a prominent feature along the ferry route from Manly to Circular Quay.
