Riverboat Postman

Today was our trip up the Hawkesbury River with the Riverboat Poatman.

We cruised on the Hawkesbury Mail Boat, the famous Riverboat Postman, and enjoyed the magnificent scenery of the lower Hawkesbury River delivering the mail and other essentials (the odd bottle of whiskey or rum…) to the river-access-only settlements upriver from Brooklyn.

Morning tea was served on arrival, with percolated coffee, hot tea, and delicious home-made ANZAC biscuits, with lunch being served around midday, and consisted of a very Aussie Ploughman’s-style plate with shaved ham, tasty cheese, tomato, zucchini, carrot, mixed lettuce, pickled onions, fresh Turkish Bread roll, pickles, fruit chutney, butter & Italian dressing.
