The Hawkesbury is also known as the Secret River, so it makes sense that the Hawkesbury Valley is full of secrets spots just waiting for you to discover.
Why not start at the Secret Garden and Nursery, a 15-hectare property tucked away at the University of Western Sydney in Richmond. There’s a full service nursery – all proceeds from the nursery go towards keeping the place running, but it’s also an absolute joy just to visit and wander through.
Book into a candle-making course on the site, or join a group at the Mate’s Shed and knock up something for home or the garden, while you’re there.
Another hidden secret is Easy Lane, a gem of a restaurant at the back of the Windsor RSL Club. The layout is green and open, the cocktails are unbelievable, and the American diner style food is delicious and the servings are massive. Chef Dan Tasker regularly rotates his weird and wonderful collection of burgers and pizzas for a very happy crowd.
We’ve got one more secret spot, and this one you can stay at. The Crowne Plaza Hawkesbury Valley is a true rural retreat, with gorgeous gardens, fantastic facilities and super-comfy, newly-refurbished rooms.
Don’t just visit the Hawkesbury – stay awhile. There are plenty of secrets for you to find for yourself.
