The Royal Australian Navy’s Landing Ship Dock, HMAS Choules will be entering Westernport today, to be ready for an Open Day on Sunday.

It’ll then travel into Port Phillip tomorrow morning and dock at Station Pier where it’ll be open to the public on Sunday.

Choules weights a massive 16,000 tonnes, is 176 metres long and 24 metres wide.

It can carry 300 troops, 23 tanks, 150 light Trucks and black hawk helicopters can even go along for the ride.

Commodore Greg Yorke told Tony Jones despite the size, she’s a very versatile ship.

“They’re actually quite maneuverable even though they’re very large,” he said.
