Arrive by boat at the Driftway, a special home full of heart and soul on the tip of Bar Point, Hawkesbury River.
The best fishing spot on the river is right out front, fish from the jetty or your boat. Located between Brooklyn and Berowra Waters you're in the ideal place for exploring the river and beaches. Head over to historic Bar Island and Marra Marra beach or up to Spencer Store and Cafe for one of Andrew's famous flathead wraps with a cold beer. Or simply relax on the large deck with water views and watch life on the river. Take a leisurely stroll along the huge parkland waterfront reserve while the kids run free - there are no cars at the Point. Plenty of room for cricket or ball games on soft grass. Up for a challenge? Take on the 1/2 day return bush walk to the swimming hole.
An unassuming, easy and practical home built for comfort, the Driftway features separate kitchen, dining and lounge areas that flow into each other with plenty of room to spread out. A no fuss light and open style with large front and back verandahs, you can laze in the hammock and watch the sunset over the river while the barbie cooks dinner.
Enjoy meals with a view at the 6 seater outdoor dining table or move inside to a full size dining table with solid chairs seating 6. The kitchen is fully equipped and the pantry is stocked with all the basics.
A genuine leather 3 seater extra plump lounge with two very roomy singles that fully recline are just heaven to relax in. Plenty of DVDs, games and books.
A distinctive weekender, the Driftway features original art works and photographs from exhibited local artists and photographer with bedrooms throughtfully styled with authentic fabrics and art from the pacific and south east Asia.
Tranquil and private, the Driftway is a boat access holiday home. Moor at our shared pontoon with deep water access even at low tide. No boat? No problem, you can hire a boat over night from Brooklyn Central or grab a water taxi anytime. Even better, take a combined Water Taxi and tinny hire deal so you get there fast and have a boat for the weekend to explore the river. You can top up supplies at Brooklyn or Spencer, both 6 nautical miles.
