Port Winston is a marvel of engineering. The scale and scope of what was accomplished here in so little time is nothing short of amazing.

Seeing is believing and understanding what was achieved all those years ago. Moving and poignant. Make sure you also visit the museum to get the detail.

Viewable from the seafront and, while it doesn't require much time, the significant of the concept and its incredible importance to the post D-Day supply line means it is a must see.
