The Victorian Artificial Reef Society (VARS) has been advised that the ex HMAS Canberra has departed Rockingham WA and is on its way to Melbourne... great news!

The weather predication is favorable (as of now) for a good tow to Port Phillip Bay and the ship is expected to arrive around 9th to 11th June.

VARS has met with the Victorian Government agencies to plan the programme for the media coverage into bay on the day.

A further update will be advised when a definite arrival date is available.
