The Capricorn Wharf returned to civilian duty as a commercial wharf following the war, and then was demolished as the Teneriffe precinct began its urban renewal.
HMAS Moreton continued as a naval base through until it was decommissioned in 1994 and then demolished soon after. This allowed the construction of Freshwater Apartments (below) on the site.

Here are a couple of photographs of HMAS Moreton shortly before it was demolished.
The next photo shows two WRANS standing next to a Navy Oldsmobile at the base during WWII. I assume that they would have driven navy brass around at the time.
Next we have a photograph from the early 1970s of HMAS Yarra berthed at the HMAS Moreton wharf. The suburb of New Farm and the Story Bridge are visible behind the base.

A memorial plaque remembering the WRANS who served at HMAS Moreton has been fixed to a stone at the former site.
