Took a train from Central to Hawkesbury River in about 60 mins- nice train ride to escape the city. Easy day trip. Very good value on the train with Opal card. Nice setting by the river.

A great spot to take a break on your way North out of Sydney is Mooney Mooney Boat Ramp and Deerubbun Reserve. The location offers views of the Hawkesbury River and you can watch people putting in and taking out their boats (somewhat comical at...More

This is one of several beautiful river valleys on this part of the NSW coast. The views are absolutely stunning. As it was the first river we saw after arriving in Australia, it is probably our favourite. We just wish that we'd had longer to...More

Gorgeous river views. The area is overflowing (pardon the pun) with beautiful serene vistas. There are caravan parks dotted along the banks and many opportunities for bushwalking, camping, water skiing and relaxing. We spent a couple of days in the Lower Portland area and came...More

A beautiful river system to cruise by on a boat, or go wake boarding, knee boarding, fishing or doughnuting. One of NSW treasures and deserves more exploration than just Brooklyn.

Lovely locations and stunning scenery. Hawkesbury river at Brooklyn is pretty tacky. Tourist borne and suffers as a result. But lovely to visit if you are a nature lover.

The Hawkesbury River is over 120kms long. The "Hawkesbury Gateway" starts at the entrance to Broken Bay at the Pacific Ocean and covers the lower part of the Hawkesbury. It is just 55 mins north of Sydney and can be accessed by the M1(f3) motorway...More

I enjoyed a peaceful visit to Hawkesbury River. The steep gorge country and rocky outcrops highlight the beauty of the water. This is a perfect spot to go picnicking, camping or boating. Highly recommended.

Hi, the best way to reach the start of the cruise would be to go to Brooklyn. You would need a hire car to get there as I don't believe there are any regular public transport options to this area. I cannot vouch for the... More
