Sydney Showboats

The Sydney Showboats are authentic air-conditioned paddlewheelers, reminiscent of those that plied the Sydney Harbour waters during the 1800s. Paddlewheelers were the backbone of the romantic era of commerce and nation building in Australia that lasted almost a century. Kalang, a former vehicular ferry, made redundant by the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in 1932, was the original Showboat. The vessel was rebuilt as a Showboat to cruise Sydney Harbour by day and night until 1972.
