Robinson Dry Dock

Notable Building in Green Point & ­Waterfront

One of the Waterfront's most fascinating sights is this large dry dock, opened in 1882 and still used to repair ships today. Named after Governor Sir Hercules Robinson, it was used to repair over 300 ships during WWII. The Pump House next to it – now housing a comedy club and food market – was used to pump out the water.
