We welcome you to experience a journey to Hawksbury River's ultimate getaway, Amaroo Cottage. PLEASE NOTE: THIS PROPERTY CAN ONLY BE ACCESSED BY WATER.

Back in 1935 there were just 6 dwellings on the bend of the Hawkesbury River called Bar Point. One of these was Amaroo Cottage. In those days the river cottages were set slightly back from the river with a boatshed located at the waters edge.

All the original buildings still exist at Amaroo and have been faithfully restored by the present owners. French doors from the main cottage lounge and master bedroom open onto a large verandah that captures the morning light all year round. The newly renovated kitchen blends perfectly with the pot belly stove that is recessed in the original stand stone kitchen wall.

A gas barbeque is ideally located on the lawn by the waters edge. The outdoor garden table, studio deck and private boatshed are perfect settings for afternoon drinks before retreating to the cottage terrace for sunset dining. Amaroo offers complete relaxation by the river.

Arrive midweek by mail boat, or water taxi, own boat, runabout during weekends. Jonathan or Mary - tel - can advise on catering & any restaurant excursions that you may want to plan.

What to do

Staying at Amaroo Cottage is mostly about doing nothing.There are however a couple of fishing rods, a great collection of books, magazines & board games to keep you occupied. A stereo, small TV & video are also in place.

For those who wish to explore further afield, we suggest you arrange hire of a tinny.

We also have a double seater Kayak which is great for exploring the local shoreline and lazing around on this beautiful river.

Head over to Peats Bite a fabulous place to dine on the weekends with a pick up and drop off service available to Amaroo Guests.

Arrive by mail boat midweek, water taxi or your own boat. Please feel free to contact Mary or Jonathan - - to discuss any further issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Weekender! 1 hour drive from Sydney and an absolute dream, this place is gorgeous! The hosts Mary and Jonathan were extremely helpful in all respects. The house, boat shed and studio were presented immaculately . Note that the jetty is shared with the neighbours so not 100% private but nonetheless they were lovely people and even let us sample their recent harvest of honey! Will be back for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heaven again This is our fourth time at Amaroo and every time it is better and better. the cottage is always spotless and it seems like home again miles away from home. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful escape. Dinner from the jetty yet again two nights in a row and over competitive darts fogged by a glass of red on the deck at night. Thank you so much. Florence and Patrick
