The Hawkesbury has been in the press this month because of the heavy rain in Sydney. Go back a few months, in mid-summer, and the Hawkesbury was rather peaceful. We went for a long drive from the Central Coast, to the top of the plateau at Central Mangrove, and then down the mountain to the Hawkesbury. It’s quite a lovely drive along the mangroves, creeks and the river at Spencer and Wisemans Ferry. We even got on the car ferry to the other side.
