DISPLAYS telling the history of one of Bayside’s oldest landmarks can now be viewed in Black Rock. The story behind HMVS Cerberus is on show near the pier at Half Moon Bay.
Friends of Cerberus spokesman John Trewarne said the four displays would help educate people about the important role of what is now a breakwater.
"Often when I was here in an official Cerberus capacity people would ask me a lot of questions about its significance," Mr Trewarne said.
"This is a great interpretative display to advise people about what it is and was.
It is a benefit and good to have here to encourage Half Moon Bay as a tourist precinct."
The concept was announced during Heritage Week last April, and the displays created over the past few months before they were finished this month.
There is also a concrete replica of a Cerberus shell, to give an idea of the military protection the vessel provided for Victoria from 1870 until the early 1900s.
The display was paid for by the Federal Government and supported by Bayside Council, with material and information supplied by Friends of Cerberus.
