AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Sydney is known most widely for its harbours and beaches, deservedly so.

'However, it also has a significant number of rivers and their tributaries which are collectively closer to the lives of the majority of Sydneysiders.This ebook captures some of the unique qualities of these ecosystems and the people who live near them.'
