You are in: Rose BayTo Places
Located in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, Rose Bay was named by Governor Arthur Phillip after Sir George Rose, England's Secretary of the Treasury at the time of the first fleet. The coastal fronted suburb has the largest bay in Sydney Harbour and in the 1930s all seaplanes flying into Sydney would land in the bay. These included the Catalina aircraft repatriating Australian POWs returning from Japan at the end of World War II and nearby Catalina Restaurant was named in honour of this momentous occasion.
