Cruising the Hawkesbury – Part 6

After a light lunch on-board, we arrived at the waterside hamlet of Marlow, on the northern side of the Hawkesbury.

Once again, it’s a community with boat-only access – which means no town water or sewerage, although they do have power and garbage collection. Unlike Dangar Island though, it takes a bit more effort to reach this place, the nearest road access being via a track from the M1.

Nevertheless, there are some nice houses – some look quite historic.

There’s mail to be delivered and collected here, and the local dog to treat. Boots the dog (named because of his white paws) expects a biscuit every day.

And all too soon we are cruising back downstream to Brooklyn. A nice way to discover the Hawkesbury.
