Summary
Summary: "Sydney Harbour explores the story of the waterway from the time of the Gameragal, Gadigal and others to contemporary debates about the future of the working harbour?. A beautifully written, compelling book, it lays out the interaction between the glittering harbour and the people who inhabited and shaped it and attached meaning to it."--Publisher description
