Must Do

Hawkesbury comes alive in winter with cozy heritage properties, churches, sheep shearing activities and architectural attractions.

As one of the first areas to be settled by the Europeans outside of Sydney, the Hawkesbury region has many potent reminders of its colonial heritage.

A number of significant heritage buildings in the towns of Richmond and Windsor have been magnificently restored, making them prime architectural highlights for visitors to explore in the cooler months.

Both towns have a number of valuable buildings dating back from the earliest days of settlement including churches, inns and houses more than 150 years old. St Matthew's Anglican Church in particular was designed by convict architect Francis Greenway in 1817.

The aesthetically rich Georgian sandstone mansion located on the Rouse Hill House and Farm estate was built in the early 1800s and serves as one of Australia's most culturally important historic properties with continuous family occupancy in a country house of New South Wales.

Tobruk Sheep Station showcases the very best of the Australian Outback. The beautiful property set on 50 acres on a high plateau overlooking the Blue Mountains invites families to stay overnight and experience true farm life. Guests can try their hand at a sheep shearing demonstration and learn about cozy wool in the wool room; a perfect activity to warm up in winter.
