IF YOU HAVE LOST THE ART OF “DOING NOTHING”
then you've come to the right place to find it again

Being amongst nature and taking the time to just be, is something that we need to do on a regular basis for our own well-being and health. Whether you are here with your family, friends or partner, just by being here, everything slows down and very quickly, you start to unwind and relax for a few days.

If adventure is more your style, then there’s loads to do to explore and be active in and around the Hawkesbury River. Here are just a few options for you to think about.

• River sports: fishing, kayaking, water-skiing, jet-skiing and boating.
• Historic tours: Hawkesbury Heritage Tour, Windsor Heritage Tour.
• Adventure: hiking, mountain-bike riding, trail bikes, horse riding.
• Bush-walking: convict trail on Old Great North Rd, Devines Hill and Ten Mile Hollow
• Farm trails: Hawkesbury Harvest Farm gate trail, Hawkesbury Vegetable Farm.
• Visit galleries, museums, country markets and wineries and so much more!

Or, you can do next to nothing staying in:
• Sunbathe on the property with or without swimmers - privacy assured (BYO sunscreen)!
• Take an outdoor shower among the trees and wildlife!
• Take a stroll in and around the property (watch out for kangaroos, goannas and wombats).
• Kayak, fish and other water sports.
• Take a nanna nap after a hearty lunch.
• Take a picnic hamper down the river.
