History of Rose Bay

Rose Bay was named after The Right Honourable George Rose, who was joint Secretary to the British Treasury with Thomas Steele, after whom Steel(e) Point at Nielsen Park was named. The name Rose Bay was used as early as 1788 by Captain John Hunter. HMAS Tingira named after an Aboriginal word for ‘open sea’ was moored in Rose Bay from 1912 to 1927. It was used to train over 3,000 Australian sailors, many for service in World War 1. There is a small park on the Rose Bay waterfront which commemorates Tingira. From 1938, seaplanes landed in Sydney Harbour on Rose Bay, making this Sydney’s first international airport. On 14 September 1945, nine Catalina flying boats landed & moored at the Rose Bay wharf, repatriating Australian POWs, survivors of Japanese camps. Sydneysiders looked on in silence, aghast at the emaciated state of the returning soldiers. There is a nearby restaurant called Catalina, referencing the aircraft of the same name
