Voices from the Secret River: Cruising Upstream

Enjoy an unforgettable 6 hours on the water exploring the hidden places and forgotten voices of the Secret River. Cruise the Hawkesbury River upstream for history onboard with Grace Karskens. Join two walking tours with expert guides and readers sharing Lower Hawkesbury stories before stopping for lunch at historical house.

Step aboard and be taken back in time as you explore convict routes and the most important wharf on the Lower Hawkesbury River in the days of the mosquito fleet. Pulling up at the Governors Halt, hear indigenous historical fiction evoking the 1800s and visit the site of the infamous Green Man Inn to delve into stories of hauntings, murders and mayhem with our expert tour guide. Our historical immersion continues in the company of Emeritus Professor Grace Karskens as we travel upstream in conversation about the old land, people of Dyarubbin and sacred country. We return to Spencer for an exquisite grazing lunch at a private historical house on the waterfront.
