I think they were Naval Aircraft practicing and remember Westland Wyverns ( torpedo carrying aircraft) shooting practice rockets at it.

I think you will find that from 1945-1950 these boilers were used for target practice by the planes that were stationed at Thorny Island. As I was a Patient in the TreloarĀ Hospital at Sandy Point while all these planes used to go over and shoot at them on a daily basis, as I was convalescing on the veranda on lovely sunny days like today.

Hope this helps in some way.
