Located on a bend in the river that affords a 180 degree vista of the surrounding pristine forests, The Berowra Waters Boathouse is a magical destination for creating special memories. The residence is perched right at the water’s edge providing the sensation of truly being on the water for the duration of your stay. Surrounded by nature the prevailing sounds are of the water lapping at your pontoon, native birds and the gentle to and fro of life on the river.

Made up of three individual buildings, all of which are available to the guests who rent our property you have plenty of room to come together or to spread out.

The Main Homestead comprises 2 Bedrooms, a Master with Queen Bed and a large separate en suite complete with Spa Bath, while the second bedroom contains new King Single bunk beds perfect for the kids but very comfortable for adult guests.

The Boathouse so named as it is built above the waterline and is a little oasis for two, simple but perfectly formed contains a double bed with toilet and vanity.

The Bunkhouse up the back is a quiet get away perfect for the late afternoons to sit up high and soak in the amazing views.


Explore the river with a hire boat from Berowra Waters Marina, enjoy the walking tracks of Berowra Valley National Park and experience fine dining at Berowra Waters Inn, where you will be picked up and dropped off at your own pontoon upon request. If you're feeling energetic the double Kayak is a great way to explore the narrow channels of the river, including the tidal channels that cannot be accessed by motor boat.

Paddle around the corner to Calabash Bay and at low tide and you will find 'The Sandbar' a small beach perfect for swimming and known only to the locals. Explore a little further and you will discover beautiful wildlife up close that you will never see if you approach by land.

Alternatively dive right off your own pontoon into the deep water of Berowra Creek or watch the kid’s splash about from the balcony above while you enjoy the amazing views.

Dinning & Entertainment

One of Sydney’s most exceptional restaurants, the fabulous Berowra Waters Inn is located just two minutes away. Our friends there, Brian and Victoria, will arrange for a free pick up and drop off right to your pontoon which makes the whole experience of fine dining that little bit more special.

Also there is Peats Bite, located approximately 20 minutes up river in an amazing open setting. Here the Hawkesbury River opens up in front of you as you sit and enjoy the unique food, entertainment and hospitality of this unique restaurant.

We also offer Foxtel most channels including sports package, Free WiFi, PS3 & a selection of games, Board Games, toys, Stereo, and a selection of books for Adults and Children are all available during your stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where memories are made I took my partner here for a surprised getaway weekend and finished it off with proposing whilst enjoying the beautiful scenery. She said YES and we'll forever remember this boathouse as the beginning of a new chapter in our lives. Dinner at Berowra Waters Inn was a unforgettable experience, from service to food. The next day we took the boat and had a picnic on the water. We'll return again to this boathouse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical weekend Our family of 6 stayed at The Boathouse and very much enjoyed our stay. All of us were captivated by the beauty of the river and loved watching the passing boats, seaplanes and kayaks, as well as the birds. We used the boat to explore the river and it's beautiful bays and to go to the cafe at Berowra Waters. The house was comfortable, clean, cosy and had everything we needed for our stay. Would have loved to have stayed longer.........

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Idyllic Retreat on the Berowra Waters My partner and I decided to stay at the Berowra Waters Boathouse and found that it had everything we needed and more. Situated on the water's edge with breath- taking views, the property is ideal for both a peaceful couple's getaway or family holiday. Very clean and well-equipped with amenities - we thoroughly enjoyed the spacious living room, kitchen and dining area. The comfortable bed also made for excellent nights sleep. We really appreciated the ample firewood as the temperature does get chilly during the winter. Location is fantastic - we spent one day cruising Berowra creek, visited Berowra Waters Inn for dinner and enjoyed a hike along the fire trail on top of the mountain. Cam and Elle are extremely friendly hosts and are available for queries during the stay. I highly recommend this gem in the heart of Berowra Waters and will be planning a trip back soon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great location but... This is definitely a gorgeous location. However, the property, during the time of our stay, was in need of general maintenance (eg the grout in the kitchen and bathroom need attention and the stairs up to the property were slippery). In addition, there are no clear property orientation notes, so unless you want to be in constant contact with the neighbour who does the check-in (something that had no appeal for us), prior to booking, check with the owners to ensure you know where to find things like kindling and to ensure there is room in the fridge and freezer to store your own provisions, and be sure to ask if the BBQ is clean and supplied with gas. Some niceties such as bedside tables and room in the cupboards to unpack, bathroom hand towels and mats would be appreciated. All of these comments have been brought to the attention of the owner so hopefully they have been addressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Weekend getaway I rented this house on Berowra Creek for a weekend in July for myself and 5 friends. It's location is absolutely fantastic and the house is fabulous. The charms of this property lie in the mix of the rustic setting and modern conveniences, some of which, such as wifi television are nearly superfluous as there is so much to do and enjoy that these are not needed. Being met at the public wharf and ferried across Berowra Waters by a very friendly and knowledgeable gentleman was a treat and added to the sense of adventure and setting of this holiday retreat. The owners, Eleanor and Cameron are very friendly and helpful and arranging the rental and boat hire was very smooth and easy. I hope I have time again later in this year as I would certainly visit again.
