Hawkesbury Heights

Hawkesbury Heights is one of the smallest towns within the Blue Mountains. It shares the same postcode as Springwood and Winmalee but received its own name in the mid 80's.

Hawkesbury Heights offers a spectacular lookout with views over the Nepean River to the Penrith International Regatta Centre, the vast plains to Sydney and the bushland below.

The lookout also provides BBQ and Picnic facilities for people who wish to take in the fresh air of the Blue Mountains while overlooking the plains.

Hawkesbury Heights also offers a newly rebuilt youth hostel also known as the North Springwood Youth Hostel and the area contains a Flora & Fauna Reserve.

Hawkesbury LookoutHawkesbury Lookout

From Hawkesbury lookout there is a winding drive down the Blue Mountains which regularly experiences falling rocks. At the foot of the descent to the left hand side a short distance into the bush is a hidden attraction...

Evidence of the Daruk tribe who inhabited the area in ages past can be seen through aboriginal art carved into rock. Remarkably preserved today is the ancient rock carving known as "the flight of the Great Grey Kangaroo".

Hawkesbury Road continues through to Yarramundi, Agnes Banks, and then on to Richmond, about 15 minutes drive from Hawkesbury Lookout.
