The \"River Retreat\" comfortably accomodates 4 - 6 persons in two bedrooms (1QS and 2SB - Bunkbeds) plus Queen size Sofa bed.

All the comforts of home are provided, modern kitchen and bathroom, polished floors and comfortable lounge and chairs overlooking the marvellous Hawksbury River in air conditioned comfort.

Enjoy the riverfront lifestyle, where you can fish, enjoy BBQs on the front deck, go bush walking through the native bushland or just laze around.

There are many local restaurants within an easy boat trip, the well known restaurant \"Peats Bite\" can be seen from the front deck and is only minutes across the river.


River Retreat is WATER ACCESS ONLY, so a boat is required to access the Cottage.

Mooney Mooney is the stepping off point to the Hawksbury River and is accessed by the M1 / F3 ( approximately 1 hour 15 minutes from Sydney).

There is a boatramp with parking for both your car and boat trailer, just after crossing the Hawksbury River Bridge from Sydney turn left and proceed approximately 200 metres to a roundabout, turn left and proceed to the boat ramp.

Using either the water taxi service or your own boat, \"River Retreat\" is just 15 minutes from the boat ramp.

Alternatively there is a public ferry(The Riverboat Postman), departing Brooklyn, Monday - Friday at 10:00am to Bar Point.

Disembark the Ferry at Bar Point Public Wharf and proceed to your right, go past the Mail Shed and proceed up the hill to Kalinda Road, the Cottage is 52 Kalinda Road, Bar Point.

Additionally, there is a water taxi & \"tinnie\" hire service from Brooklyn, ask owner for details.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from River Retreat, Excellent 9.5/10 This little cottage is absolutely perfect for a couple or small family looking to get away from the monotony of the every day life. The River Retreat had everything we could have needed from knives and forks to a full kitchenette to cater for our needs. Just a tip, make sure you have your own boat/tinnie to get to the River Retreat as while the River Retreat is very well priced, the trip to and from can be very costly. Overall we give our stay a 9.5/10

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Place Very quiet and beautiful spot. The house has everything you need, as well as access to tank water and electricity. Only down side is it is hard to find a good fishing spot.
