History behind the name
Streets in this subdivision were named after ships, the Bataan is a ship in the Australian Navy.
The Bataan was commissioned at Sydney on 25 May 1945. The third of the three Australian built Tribal Class destroyers was to have been named HMAS Kurnai after an Australian aboriginal tribe. However as a tribute to the Australian-American alliance during World War II the name was changed to HMAS Bataan - in recognition of the courageous stand by US troops on the Bataan Peninsular in the Philippines. Mrs Jean Marie MacArthur, the wife of General Douglas MacArthur, was invited to launch her.
