This popular tour is now operating on a new boat with a new company! Hawkesbury Cruises has warmly welcomed cruisers young and young-at-heart since 2001, specialising in Seniors' travel. Our coffee is real, our tea is hot, and our famous ANZAC biscuits are home-made daily to Grandma's recipe!Come cruising with us and enjoy the magnificent scenery of the lower Hawkesbury River as we deliver the m...ail and other essentials (the odd bottle of whisky...) to the river-access-only settlements upriver from Brooklyn.
