The beautiful Hawkesbury River only 1 ½ hours comfortable drive from Sydney, this quiet little part of the country doesn’t see a lot of vehicular traffic, although time is catching up.

The common denominator is the Hawkesbury River and the wonders of the Hawkesbury valley. It’s the same old river that saw the old “Eringal” and the “MV Sackville” service the folk who lived along the river. Today we don’t see that sort of craft along the river but the friendly people are still here, so are the beautiful old buildings and churches and the lifestyle is still very much relaxed as it was in the yesteryear, Sackville and its close surrounding area have some fascinating walks. Complete with wallabies, flying foxes, sugar gliders, king parrots, owls, gang gangs, black cockatoos, kookaburras, possums and the occasional wombat. There remains nearby one of the last pockets of rain forest where bellbirds are heard and the magnificent Satin Bower bird abound. Also the remains of convict roads some of which are still used today pass magnificent sandstone homesteads. Probably the most famous of these is “Liburndale Estate” built by George Smith-Hall, grandson of George Hall who engineered, helped build and founded Ebenezer Church. This family was responsible for breeding Hall’s Heeler the forerunner of today's Blue Cattle dog.

A little look back into the past working up to the present , where we had and still have great fun on and off the river, with a mix of orchards, ski parks, boat builders, house builders, nurserymen, fishermen, little schools like Sackville school now called Brewongle Field Study Centre but still a place of learning. Just as quaint as it ever was and still hidden in the little unknown place called Sackville where without the presence of shops or public transport life goes on just as it did 150 years ago.

Please don’t feel sorry for us we do have electricity, open fires, acres of timbered land to hide in. Uninterrupted views of the Hawkesbury River and to the Blue Mountains, and the old quill has surrended to the computer, and the lifestyle is still as relaxing as it always was. Now if you wish to venture out and discover this area, make contact with the locals or a Bed and Breakfast, a Ski Park, do some fishing or learn to water ski, visit local wineries, see where the last free range Aborigine lived, go bush walking, horse riding, go karting, grass karting visit some wonderful historical buildings, art galleries, antique shopping or take a relaxing river cruise, or just visit and relax. Come and see us some time in God’s Country.

the weekend was a surprise for my fiances birthday. I was very nervous about what to expect. I WAS MORE THAN IMPRESSED. it was everything i had hoped and more. We had the whole area to ourselves and it was very very romantic. My fiance loved it also and agreed that is really was nothing like a typical B&B. Vicky and Chris left us to our own but made sure that there was plenty of everything required so we didnt have to even leave the house if we didnt want to. I have already recommended this place to all my friends and am looking forward to returning again to chill and spend quality time with my man. Thank You Chris and Vicki for sharing your gorgeous place with us for the weekend.5/5 by ,

Despite being touted as a B&B, this was truly a luxurious private retreat with those special touches that make you want to return. My partner and I stayed for two nights in the Colonial Suite with our dog. We were delighted with the location, it was so quiet and right next to the confuence of the Hawkesbury and Colo Rivers. On arrival we were presented with freshly-baked bread, sparkling wine and two very substantial plates for DIY BBQ brunch! We settled in and took the ferry across the river just as the morning mist was rising off the water. We enjoyed the sun in the garden, the dog played in the stream and had a great time sniffing around. In the evening we sat by the open fire and enjoyed the beautiful spa with a glass of champagne. Everything was so peaceful. The bedroom was also very special with an electric blanket and beautiful touches. We were made to feel very welcome and would definitely return.5/5 by ,

Loved the whole experience; on entry to the room filled with candlelight and romantic music in the air. It sure made a difference to the stressfull time we had previously and we were able to relax and laze the weekend away! Thanks for everything (including the extra special touches that made our weekend special).4/5 by , NSW
Fantastic! A relaxing, secluded hideaway. Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly, and there were just too many special touches to mention. Of course, the best part was - it was dog friendly!5/5 by , VIC
Our weekend break was fantastic. The Rosewood Suite was beautifully decorated with all the inclusions one would want. The spa pool outside was absolutely wonderful, watching the birds & sipping champers. Chris & Vicky made us feel right at home & the homebaked goodies were a welcome treat. Our platters overflowed with fresh food to BBQ & the peace & quiet was very much needed. We will certainly be back to recharge our batteries. Never felt so relaxed!4/5 by , NSW
