Holbrook is located 499 km south-west of Sydney on the Hume Highway
Holbrook's best known feature is a full-sized submarine, the HMAS Otway. Motorists cannot help but see it as they drive through the town, and once seen, curiosity runs rampant. Why in the world does this little dot on the map of inland Australia have its very own submarine?
Holbrook Council acquired the Otway when it was decommissioned and scrapped. The above-the-water section was rebuilt and is now on permanent display in Holbrook's Germanton Park. It measures 90 metres from bow to stern.
