HMAS Parramatta I

HMAS Parramatta I

The hulk of HMAS Parramatta I on the bank of the Hawkesbury river opposite Milson Island.

The Parramatta (I) was a River Class Torpedo Boat Destroyer launched on 9 February 1910. She served in WW1 and as a training ship for the Naval Reserve and finally paid off on 20 April 1928. She was handed over to Cockatoo Island for dismantling. Her hull was used as penal accommodation by the NSW Penal department before being sold to Mr George Rhodes of Cowan as scrap. He used it as a Blue Metal barge and eventually sold it to persons unknown who it used to store water for local residents during the depression.
It blew ashore on this mud flat in 1934 and has remained here as a wreck.
She lay on this mud bank until 7 July 1973 when the bow and stern were removed for use as monuments at Garden Island and Queens Wharf Reserve in Parramatta.

If you are looking at the location using the Google Earth feed from MetalToad Media, the hulk can be seen 300 metres North of the photo location.
