Stretching from North Parramatta to historic Wisemans Ferry on the Hawkesbury River is Sydney's Hills District where you'll discover the mystique of colonial history mixed with cosmopolitan life. Wisemans Ferry is a serene river town set beneath towering cliffs of Hawkesbury sandstone. The ferry master still operates the punt 24 hours a day for vehicles to cross the Hawkesbury River - a time honoured tradition since 1827. Picnic on the riverbanks, take coffee around a ?replace or shoot a round of golf against this charming backdrop. No trip to this rural hamlet is complete without a walk on the convict built Great North Road.

With over 600 events happening annually, there's always a market, event or festival happening in the Sydney Hills District. From family fairs to performing arts, from music to cultural celebrations, there's bound to be an event to entertain the whole family.

The villages of Annangrove, Glenorie, Kenthurst and Dural hide a myriad of fruit orchards, hobby farms, antique and craft stalls. With over 60 nurseries in the area, this really is gardeners' heaven. Break your day with a meal amongst the spring scents at one of the many garden cafes and restaurants.
All this gives way to the modern amenities and vibrant events of Castle Hill. The Hills District is now a cosmopolitan hub with acclaimed shopping and entertainment precincts. A smorgasbord of quality restaurants and cafes cover the region. The leafy streets border open bushland and the area hosts Sydney's only State Forest.
