Hoskins, Ian

In this sweeping history of one of the world’s most recognisable landscapes, award-winning historian Ian Hoskins explores the story of this famous waterway, from its importance to the Gameragal and Gadigal people to highly charged contemporary debates about the future of the ‘working harbour’ and the ownership of its foreshores.

Sydney Harbour has been a defining feature for the people who have lived around it for millennia: a means of communication, a barrier, a resource to be exploited, a site of commerce and trade, and a place of beauty, spirit and meaning.

A beautifully written and compelling book, this new edition of Sydney Harbour surveys the interactions between the glittering harbour and the people who have fished it, sailed on it, built at its edges, fought for it, portrayed it and marvelled at it.
