Submarine pops up in Port

07/02/2008

Just a couple of days after the visit of the shining white Sun Princess to Port Arthur, the Historic Site has hosted a very different waterborne visitor.

Australian Navy submarine HMAS Collins arrived quietly in the bay on Wednesday morning, its streamlined, low-lying black a contrast to the ocean-going pleasure craft.

HMAS Collins was on its way to Hobart to join Navy Week and Royal Hobart Regatta celebrations.
