CLOUD 9

For those who are not earth-bound and want to fly 'up & away', Cloud 9 is offering a special -- read reduction -- of $40 off the usual gift voucher of $299. You can fly any day (no restrictions) -- it's great way to break up the week's commute AND purchases can be made from now to September's Father's Day.

 

   HIGH-FLYERS

We're not suggesting that you liken yourself to  Icarus.who dared to fly too near the sun on wings of feathers and wax. Cloud 9 is not constructed of feathers and wax but smashing hot-air balloons. We know you will have a big thrill with this group. Meet at the Crown Plaza Hawkesbury (formerly Sebel Resort) and after the flight, return for a scrumptous breakfast. 

 

  THIS COULD BE YOU!

The Hawkesbury landscape and topography is stunning from this height and the big winding river will be in your memory forever. For details: Follow that balloon

THERE IS A FASCINATION STILL WITH WW I AND THE HAWKESBURY CENTRALLIBRARY, WINDSOR HAS AN EXHIBITION OF INTEREST.
 
 
 
More than one hundred years ago, on 14 September 1914, Australia’s first submarine AE1 disappeared while patrolling the seas near present day New Guinea. No trace of the vessel or the 35 crew has ever been found.
 
This story is now being told in War at Sea – the Navy in WWI, an eight panel exhibition at Hawkesbury Central Library, Windsor, on tour from the Australian National Maritime Museum, from Tuesday, 8 August to Friday, 29 September, during opening hours.
 
This panel exhibition draws on the personal accounts of Navy service staff through their diaries, mementoes, ship’s logs and letters home, to tell their incredible stories of bravery and sacrifice amidst the drudgery of life at sea, patrolling, blockading and escorting troopships.
 
The free exhibition will be held at Hawkesbury Central Library, 300 George Street, Windsor.
