A tour of HMAS Cerberus

Our Homeowners at Lifestyle Bittern haven't been shy in getting to know each other and are definitely not wasting any time getting together to organise activities.

They recently enjoyed a tour of the HMAS Cerberus, a Royal Australian Navy (RAN) base that serves as the primary training establishment for RAN personnel and located a stone's throw from Lifestyle Bittern on the Mornington Peninsula.

The morning started with military precision with a tour of the 2 churches (Our Lady Star of the Sea Chapel and St. Mark's Chapel) on the base. After a few opportunities to take photos they took in a movie and were also treated to a guided-tour of the Cerberus Museum which was a very interesting display of Australia's Naval history.

At thirteen hundred hours, a lovely lunch was supplied by Navy Canteens Lieut. Andrew Stokes who doubled as the group's personal guide for the day. This was followed by a bus tour of the base, showing the group many of the Heritage listed buildings there. The day culminated with the monthly Soundwaves concert performed by the RAN Band. A big thank you to all of those that took part and of course to the RAN for a very enjoyable day out.
