Lady Denman (M.V.)

Location: Dent Street, Huskisson, NSW 2540

Constructed: 1911-1912


This beautiful ferry boat which plied inner Sydney Harbour for 67 years has now returned to where she was built to be restored. The Lady Denman is the focus of a museum in Huskisson, an old boat building area, and the museum displays traditional boat building methods as well as exhibitions about Aboriginal, European and maritime heritage. Outside you can follow the Mangrove Boardwalk and learn about coastal ecosystems. A native garden is under continual development. The museum also contains the Bidjigal Arts and Crafts shop, allowing you to view and purchase Aboriginal creations by Laddy Timbery and his family. All in all, here you will find something for everyone!
