Waterhen Court

HMAS Waterhen is a shore establishment of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN), located in Waverton, Sydney. 

Constructed on the site of a quarry used to expand Garden Island in the 1930s, the location was used during World War II as a boom net maintenance and storage area.

In 1962, the area was commissioned as a base of the RAN, and was home to the RAN's mine warfare forces.

Waterhen was the first small-ship base established by the RAN, and from 1969 to 1979 was also responsible for the RAN's patrol boat forces.
