Dangar Island Hawkesbury River Cruise

SOLD OUT

We will take a bus from the 16’s to Brooklyn where we will meet The Riverboat Postman and make our way to historic Dangar Island.  Once at the island, you have the choice to take the guided tour around Dangar Island or stay on the boat and enjoy the scenery.

Trip will leave the 16’s at approx. 9am with return at approx. 5pm.  Morning tea and a ploughman’s lunch are included, with vegetarian and gluten free options available.  The boat is fully licensed so you will be able to enjoy a glass of wine, beer or soft drink (at own cost) while you are taking in and photographing the many sights.
