Brooklyn offers a unique lifestyle on the doorstep of all that Sydney and the Central Coast have on offer. Nestled on the spectacular Hawkesbury River, an hour north of Sydney’s CBD, Brooklyn is easily accessed by nearby F3 highway and serviced by the Newcastle and Central Coast railway line. Locals say coming home every day feels like a holiday.
For those that truly relish a lifestyle entwined with the river, houses on the outskirts of Brooklyn are accessed only by private dinghy or the Riverboat Postman, who also delivers food and supplies. Brooklyn itself is well serviced by a popular pub, The Anglers Rest, and half a dozen quality restaurants and cafés that cater to locals and tourists in search of Sydney Rock Oysters.
You will never tire of the impressive sandstone cliffs and the bushland that borders the glittering Hawkesbury River. An area that’s renowned for its fishing and water play, Brooklyn is where water enthusiasts – be it sailing, kayaking or water skiing, set off from. Several marinas service the local community, including the houseboat holiday makers.
Discovering the area’s rich Indigenous history through Aboriginal rock carvings, or coming face to face with Australian wildlife is just some of the perks of living on the edge of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. Locals have their pick of bushwalks, including the iconic Great North Walk that runs from Sydney to Newcastle via Brooklyn.
