What's On in the Hawkesbury

The Hawkesbury is getting ready for Christmas with many markets and Christmas carol events for you to enjoy.

Start your weekend by joining the fun at The Australiana Pioneer Village Twilight market, on Friday night you will have a magical time as the Village is lit up with thousands of twinkling lights. There will be Christmas entertainment throughout the Village with a choir, live music and a snow tent. Santa and Mrs Claus will be arriving too.

Saturday markets are being held across the area with Bilpin Markets, The Kurrajong CWA markets and The Richmond Good Food Market providing the opportunity to buy some delicious local produce and locally made products.

On Sunday morning the markets are located in Windsor. Pop along and check out their Craft Market which is located in the amazing historic mall. Lots of great cafes, restaurants, interesting and unique shops will be open for business too.

Annual carol events are a lovely way to bring family and friends together.  Pitt Town is holding carols Friday evening with ‘Carols on the Corner’ at Scots Uniting Church, and on Sunday evening you can join together for ‘Carols on the Lawn’ at the Pitt Town Anglican Community Church.

This weekend brings to a close the Lizzy Newcomb and the Porosity Kabari exhibitions at the Hawkesbury Regional Gallery in Windsor.  Sunday is the last day so ensure that you stop by before it is too late. Keep a look out for their new exhibition starting on 13th December which celebrates the much loved TV series, A Country Practice, which was filmed in the Hawkesbury area.

If you are in the area drop into the Hawkesbury Visitor Information Centre at 328 Hawkesbury Valley Way, Richmond (opposite the RAAF Base).  We are open 7 days a week and our knowledgeable staff are passionate about our beautiful region.  Come and chat to a local for more ideas to make the most of your Hawkesbury visit!
