A Round Trip for Tourists
Submitted by Alan Aldrich
The Daily Telegraph on Saturday said that:
"The Minister for Works will shortly pay a visit to Windsor and the Hawkesbury. He will be accompanied by the Railway Commissioners, and will proceed to Brooklyn by rail, and will then go as far up the river as possible, in order to ascertain how much of the channel will require to be cleared, so as to enable a passenger steamer to reach Windsor.
If it is found practicable to do this at a reasonable cost, it is proposed to use this route as a round trip for tourists. They would in that case go from
Sydney to Brooklyn by rail, from Brooklyn to Windsor by steamer, and from Windsor to by train. Sydney
Mr. Bruce Smith has received a report indicating that surveys of the river are now being made."
We understand that as soon as the flood water recedes, Mr. Bruce Smith will travel round to
Windsor by the `General Gordon', and
remain here to open the local waterworks, after which he will attend the
proposed banquet, and return to
by the `General Gordon' again. Sydney
