For the Bays Community Group on the NSW Central Coast, we reprinted this title which we produced first in 2013.

The Bays covered in this book are located on the south western corner of Brisbane Water, encircled by National Park and waterfront. They are little known and their past even less so.

This publication covers the period from 1830 until post-second World War, including Government land grants and conditional sales; land subdivisions; sales and homes; the importance of development of transport by railway, water and road; early pioneers, families and characters; significant and less significant events; business activities; tourism; fishing; general stores/post offices; dairies; poultry raising; ferns for butchers displays; photography; ferries; fruit and vegetable growing; and much more.
