Why must Kanangra be preserved?

.
Kanangra was carrying passengers on Sydney Harbour before WW I and WW II, and has been present during all major social changes in Australia over the last 100 years. Kanangra is the last of the early inner Sydney Harbour ferries still afloat, and has played a major part in society around Sydney Harbour for 104 years. Kanangra ferried workers to and from Cockatoo Island, as well as undertaking thousands of trips taking office workers, shop assistants, school children and many others into the City of Sydney and then home again.

.

Preserving the 1912 Sydney ferry Kanangra provides a unique physical connection to over 100 years of Sydney’s maritime history.
