Don't want to cook then the Patonga Beach Hotel serves a great meal and is located at the end of the street at 6-8 Patonga Drive. There is also a fish and chip shop and cafe. Umina shopping village is 20 minutes drive for supplies and includes an Aldi, Coles and Woolworths, good coffee shops and boutiques for your other holiday needs.
Go kayaking or paddle-boarding on the Creek or throw in a line and catch a fish or two. Swim in the clear waters beachside or venture across the Creek to explore the shoreline on the other side. Bring along your own push bikes or ride ours around the wide streets of this small fishing village of only 220 houses.
There are a number of bush walks but probably the best one is to Pearl Beach through the Brisbane Water National Park. Find the walk at the North end of Patonga Beach. Follow the signs into the national park up and over the hill to the spectacular Warrah lookout with views of the Hawkesbury River and Pacific Ocean. Then walk along the fire trail, following the signs to Pearl Beach. Be sure to keep an eye out for bush turkeys and an ear open for kookaburras. Don’t forget to wear good walking shoes and take plenty of water and a snack.
Well behaved pets are welcome. This means dogs that do not bark uncontrollably when left alone and are completely toilet trained. Pets are not to sleep on beds or lounges so please remember to take along their bedding.
Patonga is a 90 minute drive north from Sydney. Drive to Patonga or drive to Palm Beach and come into Patonga by ferry. The ferry jetty docks just across from the pub which is a hive of activity for visitors and pelicans alike. The ferry leaves and returns to Palm Beach at least twice a day.
