Sydney Harbour: a history, won the Queensland Premiers Literary Prize for history in 2010 and was republished in 2022. In this sweeping history of one of the world’s most recognisable landscapes, award-winning historian Ian Hoskins explores the story of this famous waterway, from its importance to the cammeragal and Gadigal people to highly charged contemporary debates about the future of the ‘working harbour’ and the ownership of its foreshores.
