Hawkesbury River and Berowra Valley

Talkabout Sydney Hawkesbury River and Berowra Valley For Sydney today, the Hawkesbury River is the boundary to be bridged, but in the past the river and tributaries such as Berowra Creek have not formed a barrier but a way of transport.  From the Aboriginal occupation, to the first British exploration, to early settlement and pioneering industry, to the development of tourism, the waterways have had a rich and busy history. At the same time, much of the natural environment has been preserved in national parks such as the Berowra Valley Regional Park in the headwaters of Berowra Creek. Join Niall Clugston for a presentation exploring this fascinating area of the Sydney region. Niall Clugston is the Local History Librarian for Hornsby Shire. About Talkabout Sydney: Tuesdays 12.30-1.30pm The SMSA and the Dictionary of Sydney Project are working together in 2009 to present a series of interesting and eclectic lunchtime talks at the SMSA. Please make note that our weekly lunchtime talks now take place each Tuesday.
