The Hawkesbury River stretches through the heartland of the fertile valley to the Highlands at the foot of the Blue Mountains.
Surrounded by National Parks & dotted with secluded river communities, the Hawkesbury River is navigable for over 100 kilometres with 1100 kilometres of foreshore fringe. The western end of the River forms a peaceful boundary for Sydney region – you could cruise and explore there’s waters for weeks and still not see it all. Spend a peaceful overnight anchorage in a hired boat or a waterfront B&B and wake up to the call of kookaburra’s, Whip birds, Sea Eagles and the lapping of the tides.
Being a region so rich in history, the Hawkesbury Valley is dotted with National Trust listed buildings some having been converted into delightful accommodation surprises. For many a day steeped in the heritage of Australia is a rewarding experience with the area rich with the history of the nation. Visitors can pick up a Heritage Trails map, take a self-guided working tour or join a guided tour.
