Details

'There is nothing, just nothing, quite like mucking around in boats'. And where better to do so than on the Hawkesbury River? Only 70km from central Sydney the River remains an unspoilt but largely unknown holiday destination.

These rare early accounts of boating holidays capture the joys of exploring the Hawkesbury waterways with their impressive scenery, secluded anchorages and colourful characters, in the days when it was really unknown to most Sydneysiders. Includes early yachting and motor boat cruises in Pittwater, Cowan Creek, Brisbane Water and up the Hawkesbury; a rowing holiday up the Colo River; and the diary of two young women canoeing down the Hawkesbury in 1941.

Soft cover, B5, vi + 42 pages, illustrations, maps, notes.
