The vast Hawkesbury Region stretches from the ‘Gateway of the Hawkesbury River’, encompassing the Hawkesbury Heartland and Highland, Hawkesbury Valley, and the Sydney Hills region.

Just over an hours drive north-west of Sydney and nestled at the foothills of the Blue Mountains region is the Hawkesbury Valley, a region discovered by Governor Arthur Phillip in 1789 on his search for fertile farmland. Today, there are a number of preserved and restored historical buildings that are still in use.

There is something for everyone in the Hawkesbury, adventure and general tour activities, bush walking and national parks, boating and fishing, exploring the small villages and towns, history, and much more.

Known as the ‘food basket’ for Sydney, the Hawkesbury region grow a large number of produce that can be found for sale at stalls along the roads throughout the valley. Some of the orchards are also open to visitors to pick their own. There are boutique cheesemakers and wineries, as well as a number of artisans living and working in the region.
