H.M.A.S. Parramatta Stern MemorialPrint Page
The memorial commemorates the service of all ships to bear the name "Parramatta" in the Royal Australian Navy.
The Parramatta (I) Stern memorial comprises the aft (stern) end of the former vessel, as removed from the shipwreck site. The stern was cut from the once intact hull by oxyacetylene torches. It also features descriptive boards which give details of the vessels.
HMAS Parramatta was the first ship built in 1910 for the fledgling Commonwealth Naval Forces, later to become the Royal Australian Navy. HMAS Parramatta served with distinction during the First World War, mostly in Australian and southeast Asian waters, although she was off Gallipoli for a brief period. She was retired from service in 1928 and the bow and stern salvaged as relics in 1973.
