Morts Dock – Origins and Changes

Mort Bay was called Waterview Bay. At the head of the bay was the mouth of a small stream which ran down from the Balmain Hill through the valley of Strathean. On its way the stream collected in pools which came to be known as Curtis’ waterholes – an important source of fresh water in the days before corrugated iron tanks and piped water supply.

This booklet traces the history of the area and Morts Dock from this time through its various owners and operations to its closing  in the 1960s.
