Navy HMAS Waterhen (Sydney) 3350'30"S 15111'42"E
Navy's lead establishment for Mine Warfare. A shore establishment occupied by many professional sailors and home to some of the most advanced Mine Countermeasure equipment and technology

The complex comprises of 3 main buildings, 2 new wharves, a small boat jetty and boat ramp, a four level car park (196 car spaces), an oil fuel installation (OFI), a gatehouse and a magazine. The two main buildings each consist of three levels and house Waterhen and COMAUSNAVMCDGRP support staff, the new Mine Warfare Systems Centre, AUSCDT ONE, and the MWF. The third building houses Fima Waterhen. To appreciate the magnitude of the transformation of Waterhen consider that Building One alone contains more floor space than the entire Waterhen pre-modernisation.
