Welcome to Riverbend Cottage at Coba Point on the Hawkesbury River. Perfectly located half way between Berowra Waters and Brooklyn, it's your perfect weekend getaway on the river. About 1 hour north of Sydney, the cottage is only accessible by boat; a 20 min trip from Brooklyn or Berowra Waters (or 2-3 hour paddle by kayak). When you arrive step onto the jetty and meander up to the front deck, which directly overlooks the river and private beach.

The space
Riverbend Cottage is directly on the riverfront with a small private beach and jetty. Stunning 180 degree views of Berowra Creek and Hawkesbury river. Cool afternoon breezes and North East aspect make the shady balcony the perfect place to relax or cook a BBQ. Step through the French doors into the cosy lounge area with A/C (heat/cool) and loads of natural light. There's a fully equipped kitchen with dining table and chairs. The ensuite has shower and toilet and also a washing machine.

Where you’ll be

Berowra Creek, New South Wales, Australia

Coba Point is river access only. No cars, no roads, no tracks, no footpaths - just river. But there are stunning secluded beaches nearby, creeks, waterfalls, even a WW1 shipwreck. And across the river is Peats Bite restaurant (bookings essential, river access only) or further upstream is Berowra Waters Inn (bookings essential, river access only). Berowra Waters also has a marina with cafe, and a great Italian bistro "A Chef Secrets" located on the water. Brooklyn has a small shop, numerous cafes, The Angler's Rest and a railway station (Hawkesbury River). Just outside Brooklyn is The Estuary Restaurant (limited opening hours) and The Mooney Mooney Workers, which is a great restaurant/pub located in Mooney Mooney.

For the adventurous, you can walk up the back of the house, and find you way up to the top of Coba Point for the stunning views. There's no marked track however.

Remember, Coba Point is completely off grid, so all power comes from solar and batteries. Cooking is gas, using swap'n'go cylinders which we will ensure are topped up. All water on site is rain water. So please be mindful of this and use energy/gas/water responsibly.

During your stay

We don't live at the property, so on weekends the downstairs is yours. Upstairs is rented but the tenants do not occupy on weekends. We can meet you at the wharf in Brooklyn if you choose to use the river taxi. If you choose to hire our kayaks for the weekend trip, then we will meet you and provide a full safety briefing before launching your kayaks. We also offer to gear drop your food and kit if you choose that option.

There are no shops at Coba Point, so you'll need to bring in all your supplies for the weekend. However, the kitchen is stocked with the basics such as sugar/tea/salt/pepper/milk. There is wifi and smart TV, so you can relax in the evenings watching movies/shows on your favourite streaming platform (using your own account logon). But phone coverage can be a bit hit and miss out here.

All bedding and towels etc will be provided.

We expect that the property will be left in a neat & tidy state when you leave.
- We'll strip beds however, thankyou for leaving dishes washed and put away, fridge emptied, BBQ clean and bathroom tidy.
- A $50 excess cleaning fee will apply if the house is left untidy/sandy.
