History

Explore Patonga’s heritage sites near holiday homes

Patonga is named after the native Inhabitant Guringai word for ’oyster’. Although granted to European settlers in the mid-1800s, Patonga was not subdivided until the early 1900s. It became known as an attractive community to fish and live simply. Today, the tiny town reflects that need for a retreat. To explore the natural beauty and to witness indigenous engravings, you can visit Brisbane Water National Park, which is a prime example of Patonga’s unspoiled beauty. From Warrah Lookout, you can gaze over the mouth of the Hawkesbury River witnessing the same views early settlers experienced. Dedicated to the servicemen and women who served during World War II, the Patonga War Memorial consists of a stone obelisk and plaque located at Pearl Beach Memorial Community Hall.

Most restaurants are found less than a kilometre up the road in Pearl or Umina beach. You can get some of the creamiest oysters you’ve ever experienced because they hatch right off the peak of Patonga at the mouth of the Hawkesbury River. In addition to oysters, you will be delighted by tiger prawns and kingfish, served in a variety of ways. The tuna and trout are as good as the kingfish. In town, you can’t beat the fish and chips.
