Sydney Harbour has defined the life of those who have lived around it for .

Sydney Harbour has defined the life of those 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. In this book I have tried to present a sweeping history of one of the world's most recognised places from the days of the harbour clans to the demise of the working waterway in the 21st century, while acknowledging the intimate relationships that make this such as special place. Sydney Harbour: a history won the Queensland Premier's Literary Prize for History in 2010.

This is a QLD Premier's Book Awards Winner History book award. In 1925 DH Lawrence described a huge, restless, modern Sydney, whose million inhabitants seem to slip like fishes from one side of the harbour to the other. What was true then had been the case for centuries before, and decades since. Sydney Harbour has been a defining element for the people who have lived around it since the time of the harbour clans a means of communication, a barrier, a resource to be exploited, a place of beauty, spirit and meaning.

Ambitious and wide-ranging, this sweeping history of one of the world’s most recognized landmarks explores every aspect of Sydney Harbor through studies of its natural, human, and cultural history. Revealing why Sydney Harbor has been a defining element for the people who have lived around it since the time of the harbor clans, this volume examines the icon as a means of communication; a barrier; a resource to be exploited; and a place of beauty, spirit, and meaning.

Ian Hoskins, the official historian at the North Sydney Council and author of the book Sydney Harbour: A History. It is quite an iconic image for Sydney Harbour, explained Bernie Courtenay, the Captain Cook cruise boat skipper.

Some people may not be aware that some of the coastline’s bulging headlands were originally islands, explained Ian Hoskins, the official historian at the North Sydney Council and author of the book Sydney Harbour: A History. The best known of Sydney’s vanished islands is Garden Island, which was used as an offshore farm to feed a fledgling penal colony in the late 18th Century and is now one of Australia’s most important navy bases. It was a little island when the First Fleet arrived here.
