Sydney Harbour from 1902 tug (20 pictures)

Pictures taken one sunny winter afternoon from the Waratah, claimed to be the oldest coal-burning tug in the world in working order. The Waratah was built on Cockatoo Island, Sydney Harbour in 1902, and was used mainly to tow barges and dredges up and down the NSW coast. Bought by the Australia Heritage Fleet in 1968, restored, and now used for parties, weddings, and tours around the harbour, crewed by volunteers.
