Careening Cove

Careening Cove, is a bay on the northern side of Sydney Harbour, near Milsons Point.[1] The cove lies in the traditional lands of the Cammeraygal people, who called it Wia Wia. It was later named for its use in the early days of European settlement, careening (to clean a keel and the hull in general, often by rolling the ship on its side).[2]
