Holbrook (New South Wales)

Holbrook is a service town on the Hume Highway in Southern New South Wales best known for the decommissioned submarine that stands next to the highway in the centre of the town.

Get in

The Hume Highway between Sydney and Melbourne now bypasses Holbrook, roughly half way between the two. The town is still a good stopping point with fuel, food, toilets, and visitor attractions.


The submarine. You walk on it, have a barbecue, or have coffee at cafe next to it. There are some interpretive signs. Admission is free, and is a good alternative stopping place to the bland fast food restaurants or highway services.

Special Exhibitions:The Shards of Thomas Ball, convict potter, c. 1804-1823, until 31 May 2015



There are two bakeries in town.
