Event description
Launch of the book "Sailing Vessels on the Paterson River 1804-1912" written by Wayne Patfield, launched by the Hon. John Price AM

About this Event

Wayne's book is based on decades of painstaking research and interviews, bringing great accuracy and detail to this ground-breaking work. The Paterson River became the heart of the first century of European settlement in the area. Sailing vessels brought in much needed supplies and then shipped the Valley's produce to markets in Newcastle, Sydney and beyond. The information in the book will be sought after by those interested in colonial vessels, their builders and operators. It is a definitive reference for anyone wishing to understand more about the river trade, the people and their vessels.
