A short 1-hour drive from Sydney will land you in the picturesque Hawkesbury. By the time you reach Peats Ferry Bridge, it’s like taking a long exhale…it’s quiet and you are surrounded by water and native bushland – some of Australia’s finest national parks.
We were lucky enough to experience Marramarra Lodge – a luxury escape nestled in the Marramarra National Park, that pays homage to exceptional food and wine. The lodge is only accessible by boat, seaplane or helicopter; how all rockstars arrive.
When you’re not eating or drinking, there’s kayaking, bushwalking and standup paddle on offer and a spa for the ultimate relaxation. Luxury tents and spacious cabins are your choice of accommodation – all nestled within nature.
Exploring the area by boat is the best way to see the region. It will give you a glorious birds eye view of historic townships and riverside hamlets, most engulfed by National Park from their back doorsteps. It’s a place to connect and rejuvenate – the way only nature can.
