Hawkesbury Local Attractions & Activities
While in The Hawkesbury you may wish to visit the Hawkesbury Regional Gallery located in the Deerubbin Centre, 300 George Street Windsor. This is an exciting gallery space exhibiting both Traditional and Contemporary work.
Our Regional Museum located in Baker Street, Windsor is also well worth a visit. Here you will find the celestial globe that belonged to John Tebbutt, an internationally-renowned astronomer who lived his whole life in the Hawkesbury, a diary kept by a member of HMAS Hawkesbury during World War II and recording the Japanese surrender; that uniquely Hawkesbury creation, the flabbit (flying rabbit), as well as many other things of interest.
Nestled on the edge of the Wollemi and Blue Mountains National Parks The Hawkesbury invites you to explore the countless bushwalking, camping, canoeing (bring your own canoe), and swimming activities, as well as the most gorgeous picnic and BBQ spots.
Promoting our local produce is the Farm Gate Trail where you can follow a self-drive tour of our orchards, local art & craft shops, and eateries, as well as a self-drive wine trail. Or if you prefer you can relax and book a tour that will take you to these delightful places.
