The Cronulla Bundeena ferry is the oldest  running ferry to a timetable in Australia and has been in operation since 1939.

The ferry is named the Curranulla and was built and designed by the shipbuilders Morrison and Sinclair of Balmain, Sydney. The Curranulla was specifically designed to cross the shallow and rough waters of the Port Hacking River which is subject to the swells of the Pacific ocean at the nearby heads. The Curranulla has operated consisitently in these waters only resting for two weeks a year when it’s hull is cleaned and a fresh coat of paint is applied.

The Cronulla Bundeena ferry service is much loved by locals and visitors for it’s heritage looks and long years of service honouring a timetable that runs 365 days a year including Christmas day!
