Hawkesbury River Railway Bridge 125th Anniversary in May 2014
May 1st, 2014 marks the 125th anniversary of the opening ceremony of the Hawkesbury River Railway Bridge. This was an event of Regional and Local significance. It marked a milestone in the completion on the eastern railway line and the end of an era on Dangar Island. From this date, Dangar Island evolved from a busy construction site to a weekender destination and to the unique community it is today.
The Dangar island Historical society is proposing to lead a celebration of this event over two days – Saturday May 3rd & Sunday May 4th 2014. Keep these dates free in your diary and join us on the Island and in learning more about our local history. More information to follow soon!
