MEN of the Upper Hunter Shire are invited to test their “sea legs” on board the famous Riverboat Postman in August.
The Scone Neighbourhood Resource Centre (SNRC) has organised another Virtual Shed tour, which should delight all those who participate.
“Come cruising with SNRC team members on the Hawkesbury Mail Boat on Wednesday, August 3 – and enjoy the magnificent scenery of the lower Hawkesbury River,” project officer Belinda McKenzie said.
“The first Riverboat Postman started the run in 1910 and continues today with skippers who are locals and have lived in the area their whole lives.
“Their stories will entertain you while cruising in comfort, delivering mail to the settlements of Dangar and Milson Islands, Kangaroo Point, Bar Point, Marlow Creek, Fisherman’s Point and Milson’s Passage before returning to Brooklyn.”
Bookings are necessary by calling into the Scone Neighbourhood Resource Centre at 130 Liverpool Street with your details from the registration form and a donation of $10.
Morning tea and lunch is included.
The bus will depart Murrurundi at 6am, Scone Railway Station at 6.30am and Aberdeen at 6.50am – and return about 4.30pm.
The Virtual Shed project is funded for men through the NSW Department of Social Services to improve the lives of rural men through information, resources and programs.
