Hawkesbury River Ferries

In 1790 the Hawkesbury River became the lifeline of trade between the farming communities and the struggling colony at Sydney Cove. Trade flourished during the 19th Century and then declined as roads developed. The Riverboat Postman carries the daily needs to the river population, mail, milk and groceries. You’ll spend hours enjoying the life of the river trade and see the wonderful scenery that only the Hawkesbury River can offer. The Skipper will provide you with a knowledgeable commentary about historical features.
