Discover the Hawkesbury

You’ll be amazed what you can find on Sydney’s doorstep

The Hawkesbury is a region of historic towns, fresh food and outdoor adventuring. Here you can walk a World Heritage convict road, sample locally brewed cider or go horseriding. Winding through it all is the river, a place for fishing, watersports or a lazy cruise amid stunning scenery.  

Why not stay overnight? Your choices range from campsites with good facilities to luxury spa retreats, historic pubs to houseboats, or even a working farm.
