Overview

Hawkesbury River Kayaks has a small fleet of single and double kayaks for hire, perfectly suited to exploring the waters and inlets of the Hawkesbury River. Spend just a few hours paddling around Dangar Island, or take a weekend to travel upstream and camp at a secluded beach. Explore beautiful Jerusalem Bay, picnic on one of many small beaches, or have lunch at picturesque Cottage Point.

Bob was really great, taking the time to answer our questions and making great suggestions as to where we should go. He was happy to change the day we kayaked to go when the weather was better. Great service and great day out. Thanks Bob!

See the Hawkesbury River from a new perspective. We did an overnight trip & camped. Paddled around 24 kms there and back. Stopped at little inlets. Perfect weekend offline & in nature.

Response from Bob P | Property representative |
Train goes directly to Brooklyn from central station. Brooklyn is known as "Hawkesbury river" railway station. Take the Newcastle and central line, one hour. Short walk to parsley bay. Cheers
