Sit back, relax, and enjoy a cruise of the lower Hawkesbury River on board the Riverboat Postman. Get rejuvenated by the magnificent scenery and step back in time as you join the Hawkesbury mailboat deliver mail and other essentials to the river-access-only settlements upriver from Brooklyn, such as the settlements of Dangar and Milson Islands, Kangaroo Point, Bar Point, Marlow Creek, Fisherman's Point and Milson's Passage.

The cruise costs $50 per person, children aged 4-14 years $15, and $115 for a family of four (2 adults and 2 children). Discounted rate for seniors is $44. This includes morning tea and lunch.

Morning tea is served upon arrival the way you haven't had before, with percolated coffee, hot tea, and delicious home-made ANZAC biscuits. Lunch is served around noon, and consists of a 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. If you have other dietary requirements, let the cruise operators know at the time of booking and your requirements will be catered for.

Note that the boat is fully licensed, so you can enjoy a glass of wine or beer, or a soft drink, with your lunch. The bar serves water at any time.

Brooklyn is just an hour north of Sydney, and the Riverboat Postman cruise is one experience you'd definitely want to try (and maybe try again).

Your Comment
One of the best things to do in Sydney. The skipper has funny and interesting stories and facts to tell.
Leave the car at home. Take the train to Brooklyn station.
