To avoid any surprise attack from the Russians during the Crimean War, the Australians built a series of forts along the shoreline. One such military fort was Fort Scratchley, which never actually fired a shot in until 1942 during a forgotten confrontation during WWII, when a Japanese submarine surfaced and opened fire on the city. The Australians retaliated and within 4 rounds, there wasn’t a submarine to speak off. The fort was occupied by the Australian Army till 1972 after which it was declared a historic site.
