About the property

The View . . . magnificent . . . Beautifully renovated cottage.

The View . . . magnificent . . .

Beautifully renovated cottage, stylishly decorated and enjoying 180 degree water views down the lower Hawkesbury River. Ideally located with easy road access to the quiet and friendly Cheero Point riverside settlement, 'Above the Hawkesbury' is your ideal riverside getaway. Accommodation for up to 5. Pet friendly and children welcome.

Your intimate cottage features soft tallow wood timber flooring with large light filled windows, two bedrooms and an open plan living room with kitchen and dining area and a petite bathroom with shower and plenty of solar-heated water. The stylish kitchen is fully equipped with quality appliances and dishwasher.

Although the cottage is not large, creative design and furnishings have created an intimate and comfortable getaway.


Above the Hawkesbury is ideal for singles, couples, small families or friends travelling together. Your Cottage includes everything for a relaxed and comfortable stay for up to 5 persons: the Queen room with outstanding river views and the double room with double bed with single bunk bed above.

Furnishings are soft, contemporary and Asian inspired and include a comfortable leather sofa and large screen LCD television. Large sliding picture windows open to a tiny Juliet-style balcony, which overlooks the reserve. Walk across the narrow access road to the reserve and take the steps down to our private picnic area, jetty and wharf. The steps are steep near the top and uneven so care is needed.

It's hard to believe that you are only minutes away from Brooklyn, the M1 and Pacific Highway and only 45 minutes from Sydney CBD.

The neighbouring property is scheduled for rebuilding this year and there may be some noise and disruption over the next few months during normal trade working hours. Please contact us if you have any concerns.

less than 2km to Mooney Mooney where you'll find a great restaurant at Mooney Mooney Workers Club. Drive a few minutes further and you can enjoy the cafes, restaurants, marinas and boating facilities of Brooklyn.

Cheero Point is close enough to the action and far enough away to be 1000 miles from care! Milloo Parade is very quiet with only a few homes located along the narrow lane above the waterside.

Unique among many riverside properties, "Above the Hawkesbury has water access (except at low tide) as well as road access." The cottage is located on the roadside so parking is limited. You can turn around at the end of Milloo Parade then park infront of the house or use the garage.

Across the narrow road is the reserve. There is a picnic area at the bottom of the reserve with wharf and pontoon where you can moor your boat or go fishing. Depending on tides, boat access to the water may be limited for an hour or so either side of low tide.

Boats including 'tinnies' can be rented for a small change from several marinas in Brooklyn. Swimming from the pontoon is not recommended. Take a boat down the river or drive to the beaches on the Central Coast 30-40 minutes.

Located east of the Pacific Highway and a few minutes drive from the M1 freeway and close to Mooney Mooney. Close to Lower Hawkesbury attractions: Brooklyn, Dangar Island and Peats Bite.

Cruise the beautiful Hawkesbury River with Australia's last Riverboat Postman. The Riverboat Postman takes between 3 and 4 hours to complete a trip and starts from the Brooklyn wharf just beside the Hawkesbury River Railway Station. It runs from Monday to Friday, departing at 9:30am (except Public Holidays).

You can also enjoy our afternoon Coffee Cruise, take a trip on the regular Dangar Island Ferry run. Ferries leave Brooklyn several times each day.

Great view, clean & bright car parking a bit tight.

  • 4 of 5

Allowing us to stay at very short notice for only one night was a huge bonus. We did have trouble with the locking code but Carl responded to our problem quickly and all was good. Don’t forget to take your linen from home.

Owner's Response: Hi Catherine, Thank you for your kind comments, we are usually able to book guests in at last notice and usually take one night bookings except on weekends. We do provide linen and towels on request for a small charge and prepare the beds in advance when requested.. I am so glad that the small troubles with the key code did not distract from an enjoyable stay for you.

Perfect small space by the water

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to stay for a couple. Setup with everything you need in a small tree house like space that has the most beautiful observation veranda above the property with a BBQ that makes the perfect setting for a meal and a long chat. Does sleep 5, would be a tight fit though. Could easily do 2 couples. Water is just out the front. Very private street with clear views to the river from the property. Not much space for kids or any activities we noticed nearby and the stairs to the veranda are a tight staircase that may not be elderly friendly. The owners are lovely and give great instructions. We would definitely visit there again. Overall a really wonderful place to be and stay at, great value.

Owner's Response: Hi Jeremy, Thank you for your kind comments. The cottage is more ideal for couples rather than families as well as those who can manage steep steps. But, just in case, we include a few games in the house for children. There are also a couple of children's fishing rods in the laundry/garage area too, that previous guests have left and there is a fenced park near the bin area for children to play.

Perfect peaceful weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Above the Hawkesbury cottage was located in such a perfect place - right above and across from the lake and beautifully set up for optimum comfort.

We really enjoyed cottage as it had everything we needed for a couple.

I think anything bigger than a family of 3 might get a bit cosy due to the bathroom being particularly miniature (but this was fine on our part). The only thing we would have absolutely loved would be the balcony to be bigger however this is something that's enforced into the design of the home so really, no complaints here.

We'd definitely come back to escape the hustle and bustle of Sydney for sure!
