Amaroo Cottage on the magical Hawkesbury River is the stuff of lovers' dreams: castaway together on a distant shore, far from the cares of the world and surrounded by idyllic natural beauty.
The setting is utterly beguiling, the sense of history is enchanting. This charming and lovingly-restored cottage and boathouse date from the early 1900's and are nestled in terraced gardens on the banks of the Hawkesbury. You can only get here by boat making this a truly romantic castaway scene. As you sidle into the dock and the outboard engine lapses into silence, birdcalls abound while mullet swim up close to the shore's edge. Fishing anyone?
The living is easy in the relaxed rooms of the cottage and boathouse, which have beds for six (so couples could bring friends, if they wish). There is a cozy country kitchen and French doors that open to sun decks that will have you basking in the warmth. The boathouse has been converted into a smart waterfront lounge with a studio overlooking the jetty.
What to do here? In a word: relax. Throw a line into the water for a fresh fish barbecue, put your feet up on the deck with a book, sit on the private beach, or contact the local restaurant at Peats Bite who will pick you up for a long lazy lunch.
