    Not sure. Maybe Bobbin Head on the Hakesbury.

    After my post I had another thought that it may be a ferry on the Parramatta river about the 1930s.

    Thanks Allan, I’m pretty certain it is Berowra Waters. Have a look at some present day images for comparison:

    Another view:

    This one might be a hard one. The most notable change is the size of the Marina on the Bay Rd side!

    Sorry. You are correct of course. I didn’t read the question properly.
    It is probably about the 1930’s.

    By the look of small watercraft of which my father in law has a similar photo and the houses, houseboats etc – I would say 1910-1920
