For those interested in the historical aspect, The Copenhagen Mill and Shipyard foreshore walk offers a glimpse of the past. Along the waters edge you will see the logs that were placed to support the keels of ships as they were being built over a hundred years ago. Shipwright, John Campbell Stewart, built a number of ships in this yard including the Royal Tar, completed and launched in 1876. It was the largest ship built in New South Wales at the time and was built for the North America, Japan and New Zealand trade run. It played an historical role in ferrying famous emigrants from the New Australia Association to Paraguay between 1893 and 1894.
