Up the Lazy River
Let our knowledgeable volunteer guides take you on a tour of Parramatta River from Darling Harbour to Newington with a stopover at the Newington Armory Cafe for lunch!
Start Time: 10.00am
Finish Time: 1.45pm
Vessel: 1943 Motor Launch Harman
The tour starts at the Australian National Maritime Museum with an introduction to Sydney Heritage Fleet and the tour. Join us on our heritage motor launch Harman for a 3½ hour cruise of the Parramatta River from Darling Harbour to Newington. Along the way you’ll see and hear about the birthplace of the Green Ban in Australia, a childhood home of the famous poet, the little-known monument to a Sydney world champion, prestige redevelopment of former industrial sites, former boatbuilding sites; large and small, heroic and hopeless, through peace and war, the hidden resting place of our best known Aboriginal man, the lasting legacy of a great philanthropist.
And our guides will tell you about many more fascinating sites lining the river, old and new!
