A relaxing half day delivering mail in a rather different way while enjoying beautiful scenery and learning the history and present day events. Delivered big time. Great food and friendly staff.

A must do while in NSW. The cruise up the river to deliver the mail takes in all the places of interest and the running commentry ensures you are well informed of what you are seeing. The skipper and crew make every effort to ensure this is a special half day out on the river.

Finally got around to doing this cruise after talking about it for years. It did not disappoint.
Everything promised was delivered. Would recommend to everybody.
The scenery is awesome and the Captain's commentary is both informative and entertaining. Crew staff are very friendly and attentive from the welcome aboard to the farewell and thanks.
As the saying goes … " JUST DO IT"

This is a beautiful outing perfect for international visitors, kids and elderly. Great friendly staff who are very accomodating of special needs and will help you celebrate any event. Yes, that means they sing Happy birthday as well! This feels like a family business although Im not sure it is, It certainly has a great community feel about it. Highly recommended.

We took some QLD relies on the riverboat Postman recently and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. From the fresh billy tea and Anzac biscuits as we left the wharf, the narration about the various inhabitants of each island, a bit of the history of the Hawkesbury river and the postal service and finishing with a terrific ploughman lunch. A wonderful way to see parts of Sydney/Hawkesbury when all the other ‘tourist’ sites have been seen.
