If you are planning to spend a weekend in the Blue Mountains or have in mind an ambitious day trip, consider taking in some of the wonders the Hawkesbury region offers.
Hawkesbury valley is full of history, especially the early colonial towns of Richmond and Windsor. For a family outing, the Australiana Pioneer Village in Wilberforce consistently gets great reviews. Aside from the parklands, galleries and cafes there are wineries to explore as well as a leisurely cruise on the Hawkesbury River that leaves from Windsor.
The winding estuary of the Hawkesbury River offered early settlers a sanctuary from the city and is still dotted with a legacy of sandstone ruins, historic cottages and convict trails. Steep, forested slopes compliment this tranquil waterway and its serene bays. Hire a canoe for a paddle, go fishing, or for the more adventurous there is water skiing and wakeboarding. The Hawkesbury Paddlewheeler offers Sunday cruises with a jazz band, while those who have the time might consider anchoring overnight in a houseboat.
For those heading to the Blue Mountains, the Hawkesbury highlands offer an alternative route to the great western highway. This option takes you through beautiful Kurrajong and a host of panoramic views, rolling green hills and the unique call of the bellbirds. Be sure to stop in at Bilpin and take advantage of the orchards and stalls, which offer local varieties of stone fruit and apples. Further up the Bells line of road is Mount Wilson, a hidden gem with spectacular garden festivals.
