Brooklyn, on the Hawkesbury
Posted by Lisa Hill on January 22, 2010
There was a plan for a rest stop somewhere on our return journey to Yass this morning, but we ditched it when we got within sight of the Hawkesbury. We drove off the freeway to take a look at a lovely little spot called (I think) Cheerio Point, and met a fisherman who suggested nearby Brooklyn for a lunch with river views.
So here we are, and it’s lovely. I suppose Sydneysiders know it well, but for us it’s a delightful discovery with riverside cafés, a marina full of pretty little boats and endless places where you can hire a houseboat and drift up and down the Hawkesbury to your heart’s content.
Just the place to enjoy a ‘fisherman’s basket’ bursting with fresh Aussie seafood!
