The Hawkesbury region boasts beautiful world heritage locations, majestic rivers and more national parks than any other part of Sydney. The Hawkesbury is cradled by four gigantic parks - the Blue Mountains National Park to the west, Yengo and Dharug National Parks to the north and the mighty Wollemi National Park to the north-west.

Many people head up to the Blue Mountains to go hiking but we think the bushwalks around here are just as good!

Our favourite bushwalks can be found in our guides Best Bushwalks Around the Hawkesbury (RRP$6) and the new 2021 release Best Bushwalks Around the Hawkesbury Volume 2 (RRP $6).

These popular guides have been written by a local with over 30 years of bushwalking experience in Australia and overseas.  Walks are suitable for beginners to experts.

Available to order by phone: Tel.02 4560 4620 (9-4pm Monday to Friday)  or email discover@hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au
