Already done The Riverboat Postman? If you are part of a group or a club with more than 20 people ready to cruise, then this one is for you! It can be booked for any available day, and usually departs from Brooklyn at a time that suits your plans. It includes morning tea on arrival, and a great fish'n'chip lunch served on board. This is also the itinerary for our Sunday cruise (which still requires bookings but no minimum numbers), with departure dates as listed on our home page.
Learn the history of the islands of the Hawkesbury – Lion Island, Dangar Island, Spectacle Island, Long Island, Peat Island, Milson Island, and Bar Island. Cruise past the water-access-only settlements of the Lower Hawkesbury, and see the wreck of the HMAS Parramatta, Australia's first warship, and find out how it ended up on the Hawkesbury River lying at the foot of spectacular sandstone cliffs.
Departing from Brooklyn Public Wharf, this cruise covers the lower end of the Hawkesbury River.
