Only an hour north of Sydney!
Come cruising with us on the Hawkesbury Mailboat, the famous Riverboat Postman, and enjoy the magnificent scenery of the lower Hawkesbury River as we deliver the mail and other essentials (the odd bottle of whiskey or rum...) to the river-access-only settlements upriver from Brooklyn.

This popular tour is now operating under the Hawkesbury Cruises banner. 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!
The first Riverboat Postman started the run in 1910, and the tradition continues today. Our skippers are locals who have lived in the area their whole lives - be entertained by the stories of the river whilst cruising in comfort up this spectacular waterway. Be assured that at least 95% of what they say is true...
We deliver to the settlements of Dangar and Milson Islands, Kangaroo Point, Bar Point, Marlow Creek, Fisherman's Point and Milson's Passage (pictured to the left, with the 'Republic of Milson's Passage's Finance Minister and Mayor' taking the mail from one of our passengers) before returning to Brooklyn by about 1.15pm
The cruise departs daily every weekday (Monday to Friday) except Public Holidays from the Brooklyn Public Wharf (see the ferry icon on the map) at 10am, returning at about 1.15pm.
