Dangar Island played an important role in the discovery of much needed farmlands for the newly colonised Sydney. Governor Phillip used the Island as a base for his explorations of the Hawkesbury River, resulting in the farming settlements of Windsor and Richmond.
Later, the Island housed the construction workers for the all-important Hawkesbury River Railway Bridge, completed in 1889.
Departing from Brooklyn Public Wharf, this cruise covers the lower end of the Hawkesbury River.
Enjoy a guided tour of the historic Island, or for those with less mobility, remain in comfort on the M.V. Emily Melvey, M.V. Zarapito, or M.V. Bayrunner and enjoy a cruise around the island!
This cruise also takes in the township of Brooklyn and the settlements of Wobby Beach and Cogra Bay, as well as the entrance to Mooney Mooney Creek, and wonderful views of the ocean.
