HMAS Kuttabul

As the heart of the Garden Island Defence Precinct (GIDP), HMAS Kuttabul’s primary role is to provide administrative, training and logistics support to Defence personnel employed within the Sydney area. Garden Island itself has been host to a naval base since 1856.

Kuttabul is home to Fleet Support Unit South East (FSU-SE) which conducts maintenance on ships and submarines. Training and mentoring is offered through the Skills Development Centre, where the newly trained technicians from the Navy's initial training pipeline undertake consolidation training and competency progression.

HMAS Kuttabul is located in the heart of Sydney, within walking distance of the Harbour. Beaches on the north shore are less than an hour’s drive away where activities such as swimming, beach volleyball or windsurfing are common.
