Sorry to disappoint, but VARS has been advised by the Department of Innovation, Industry & Regional Development (DIIRD) that the ex HMAS Canberra will now not be coming through Port Phillip Heads on Monday 9th June 2008. It's new estimated time of arrival through the heads is Tuesday 10th June 2008 at 6:35 a.m., though this too is subject to possible change.
