HMAS Cerberus has marked the centenary of its commissioning as part of the Australian Defence Force. The RAN’s premier training establishment and oldest commissioned base was formally commissioned on September 1, 1920, and while it’s affectionately known as the ‘Cradle of the Navy’, HMAS Cerberus currently provides training for all three branches of the ADF.

Commanding Officer Captain Mike Oborn and senior leadership unveiled a centenary plinth at the site of the base’s original commissioning to commemorate the milestone, earning the congratulations of Flinders federal Liberal MP Greg Hunt. “Local residents know that HMAS Cerberus is such an important part of the Mornington Peninsula story,” Mr Hunt said. “For 100 years, the base has provided training to new cadets who go on to serve our nation with pride and purpose as a member of the Australian Defence Force.”

There are about 1800 people at the base at any time, and some 6000 navy, army and air force personnel undergo training there each year. “Each of these individuals plays an important role in our local community,” Mr Hunt said.

“The Morrison Government is continuing to support our local economy and the base with more than $465.6 million in redevelopment works underway, with scheduled completion by mid-2023. This secures not only improved training for our next generation of cadets but HMAS Cerberus’s legacy as an enduring part of the Australian Defence Force.”

The redevelopment includes:
• An engineering services upgrade;
• Refurbishment of live-in accommodation and mess facilities;
• Construction of a new logistics precinct;
• New school of survivability and ship safety and new survival at sea facility; and, 
• An upgraded physical training facility.
