HMAS Otway

Holbrook, New South Wales has a different way of putting itself on the map. Rather than opting for a big banana or giant ram, this Australian town chose a different roadside attraction—one that pays homage to its namesake.

Holbrook’s European settlers originally named their new town Germantown. But during World War I, anti-German sentiment led residents to rename their town after an English submariner, Commander Norman Holbrook VC.
