IF YOU HAVE LOST THE ART OF “DOING NOTHING” then you've come to the right place to find it again

Being amongst nature and taking the time to just be, is something that we need to do on a regular basis for our own well-being and health. Whether you are here with your family, friends or partner, just by being here, everything slows down and very quickly, you start to unwind and relax for a few days.

If adventure is more your style, then there’s loads to do to explore and be active in and around the Hawkesbury River. Here are just a few options for you to think about.

• River sports: fishing, kayaking, water-skiing, jet-skiing and boating.
• Historic tours: Hawkesbury Heritage Tour, Windsor Heritage Tour.
• Adventure: hiking, mountain-bike riding, trail bikes, horse riding.
• Bush-walking: convict trail on Old Great North Rd, Devines Hill and Ten Mile Hollow
• Farm trails: Hawkesbury Harvest Farm gate trail, Hawkesbury Vegetable Farm.
• Visit galleries, museums, country markets and wineries and so much more!

Or, you can do next to nothing staying in:
• Sunbathe on the property with or without swimmers - privacy assured (BYO sunscreen)!
• Take an outdoor shower among the trees and wildlife!
• Take a stroll in and around the property (watch out for kangaroos, goannas and wombats).
• Kayak, fish and other water sports.
• Take a nanna nap after a hearty lunch.
• Take a picnic hamper down the river.

Hi there! My name is Maria Nati. Together with my husband Rick, we own and run Coco Palms Coastal Retreat at Toogoom, Hervey Bay QLD and Riverview Nature Retreat at Lower Portland, Hawkesbury NSW. We live on the Northern Beaches of Sydney NSW with our two children. We love to spend time at the beach but also love our time in the country. So we own two properties that can give us the best of both worlds. Both are close enough to everything but feel like miles away from it all. Both are easy to get to. While different locations, both give us a place where we can relax and getaway from life's pressures. One is inspired by tropical islands while the other is inspired by the Australian bush. Both feel like home. We love our getaway homes and are happy to share them with you to enjoy with your family and friends.
