Sub Base Platypus is a must-visit destination in North Sydney – complete with public parkland and heritage buildings that have been woven into the life of the area. The Harbour Trust is now improving the site further for the benefit of all Australians.
The Torpedo Factory Renewal Project

The Harbour Trust is delivering the Torpedo Factory Renewal Project. The Torpedo Factory Renewal Project comprises partial demolition of the former Torpedo Factory at Sub Base Platypus to enable the construction of:

  • Harbour foreshore park with landscaped terraces.
  • Public domain areas and spaces that explore the site’s history.
  • Solar power generation from roof-mounted panels and rainwater capture storage.
  • Enhanced pedestrian connection to the foreshore and car parking.

The Harbour Trust acknowledges the Cammeraygal People as the Traditional Custodians and Owners of the area, which includes the Torpedo Factory site.
