Magnificent Berowra Waters

Berowra Waters (BW) is probably one of the best-kept secret around Sydney. Berowra Waters is the small river settlement north of Sydney and less than an hour from city.  The Berowra waters is surrounded by famous Ku-ring-gai chase
national parks. It is a perfect union of natural bushland and aquatic, with spectacular national park to the east, the Berowra valley regional park to the west, and the Hawkesbury river to the north.
Berowra Waters is a wonderful spot for a great day out on a warm sunny day with friends and family.  It is less than an hour from Sydney and just off the F3 freeway.
BBQ Boat

You can plan many activities, including swimming, boating, fishing, bushwalking or just casual dining on the waterfront.
My favourite activity is to hire a barbeque boat (BBQ boat) and sail down the beautiful Hawkesbury River. If you just want to go out in water for couple of hours, you can also hire canopy aluminium boats (Tiny’s).  There is no licence required and activity is safe for kids as well. You can hire a BBQ boat at

How to reach

If you are coming from Sydney, start on F3 and take second exit to Berowra.  Then follow the signs to Berowra waters or tourist drive 11.  At the end of Berowra water road, there is a vehicle ferry which will take you to the other side of Hawksberry river. The ferry works 24 x7, however please check any maintenance shutdown before starting from home.
