Wisemans Ferry

Far northern village on the Hawkesbury River. The ex-convict ferryman Solomon Wiseman (1778-1838) was known as the 'King of the Hawkesbury' and two ferries still operate there. The local Aboriginal name for this spot, recorded in 1829 by the Reverend John McGarvie, was 'Woolloomoorang'.
