Hawkesbury River is perfect for exploring
Brooklyn is the major town along the Hawkesbury River, the starting point for adventures along this sublime and rugged waterway. Rent a houseboat, take a ferry ride, settle down with the seagulls for a meal of fresh fish and chips or hop on board with the Riverboat Postman and set off on a cruise to experience river life.
An alternative trip is on the short ferry ride to Dangar Island, home to a small community who treasure the island’s casual, barefoot style and freedom from traffic.
