This magnificent waterway is nestled among spectacular National Parks and is considered Sydney’s hidden paradise.
A unique island paradise on the Hawkesbury River near Brooklyn to the north of Sydney, Dangar Island is surrounded by sparkling water and views in all directions. With no private cars to disturb the ‘sounds of silence’, Dangar Island is a haven of peace and tranquillity and an ideal place for a holiday, a weekend away or even a day trip from Sydney.
Life on Dangar Island is so different to that in Sydney, you’d never believe you were just an hour away by train from the big city. For starters, the wheelbarrow is the main method used to haul goods from the ferry which services the island throughout the day from the town of Brooklyn. The only mode of public transport, apart from walking, is the push bike, unless you own one of just a handful of golf buggies that escaped the ban on powered transport. The island has only one shop/cafe, and a bowling club for members/visitors which has a bar.
