Family Escapes in The Hawkesbury

Located around one hour from Sydney, The Hawkesbury is the ideal family destination with a huge range of activities to suit all ages.

Accommodation ranges from comfortable and affordable hotel and motel accommodation, to farmstays, camping and caravan sites, and waterside parks complete with enough activities to keep even the most active family amused!

Outside of the resorts, the Hawkesbury region is full of activities that will suit the kids as well as mum and dad! Activities include a range of bushwalking options – with more than ¾ of the Hawkesbury region still pristine bushlands, the walking and trekking options are endless. Horse riding and 4WD tours through these Parks are also available for those not wanting to venture too far on foot!

Other sites and activities include:

  • Blue Mountains Botanic Garden, Mount Tomah,
  • Animal Farm,
  • Hawkesbury Leisure Centre, Windsor,
  • Discovery tours of Hawkesbury’s heritage,
  • Photographic adventures
  • Butterfly Farm
  • Indy 800 Kart Track at Wilberforce
  • Ten Pin Bowling



And of course the great Hawkesbury River – ideal for water skiing, houseboat adventures, fishing and cruises or just relaxing!

The Hawkesbury has so much to offer families – without the cost and stress of long distance traveling.
