Probus Tours
 
 
 
 
Today we will be joined on our club adventure by Judith Dunn, (local Historian / Guide) who will lead us along a somewhat familiar path through the early years of the young colony. Though many consider our region (the Macarthur Region) to be the birthplace of farming in Australia, it is the Hawkesbury which could be considered as a youthful growth region, providing much of the agricultural produce required by the developing community.
As we make our way to the historic little Church on the banks of the Hawkesbury River at Ebenezer, Judith will explain some of the history and the development of this region. Once inside the oldest church in Australia our “lesson” continues.

Historic Hawkesbury
Friday 16th October 2020
Today we will be joined on our club adventure by Judith Dunn, (local Historian / Guide) who will lead us along a somewhat familiar path through the early years of the young colony. Though many consider our region (the Macarthur Region) to be the birthplace of farming in Australia, it is the Hawkesbury which could be considered as a youthful growth region, providing much of the agricultural produce required by the developing community.
As we make our way to the historic little Church on the banks of the Hawkesbury River at Ebenezer, Judith will explain some of the history and the development of this region. Once inside the oldest church in Australia our “lesson” continues.
From here we travel back to Windsor through the village of Wilberforce (one of the 5 Macquarie Towns proposed by Gov Lachlan Macquarie during his turn as the Colonial Governor), still learning more about the development of the region.
The “history lesson” continues in Windsor, a small town with an excess of colonial history.
After lunch at the Windsor RSL, we visit the magnificent St Matthew's Anglican Church (not to be confused with St Matthews' Catholic Church just around the corner, but that is a story for another day). Once again Judith will regale us with more information than we could possibly handle. 
After another full day with our Probus friends we make our way back to Narellan.
