The Hawkesbury River is a winding estuary located 55km north of Sydney NSW, Australia.The Hawkesbury River is surrounded by steep, forested slopes, the serene bays and inlets that provided an enclave for early settlers. The area is still dotted with a hidden legacy of sandstone ruins, historic cottages and convict trails.
Today the area offers a bounty of places to escape to, relax in and explore. It is the ideal location for a riverside holiday or weekend escape.
The best way to enjoy the river is, naturally, on the expansive, tranquil waterway. You’ll also find bushwalking, picnic spots and even canoeing and mountain bike trails in the region’s national parks and reserves.
