Australia's best-kept tourist secret — Wisemans Ferry and district. Less than two hours from downtown Sydney! Set amid spectacular mountain scenery beside the broad Hawkesbury River, the village of Wisemans Ferry lies at the centre of a remarkable range of attractions. The river can be crossed on Australia's oldest ferry service, begun by Solomon Wiseman in 1827. Nearby is the convict-built Old Great North Road with its impressive buttresses and rock cuttings, now a national monument. A tour of the Macdonald Valley to St Albans leads the visitor back in time through an area little changed since the days of pioneer settlement. Two national parks offer walkers the opportunity to enjoy the rugged sandstone scenery with its unique bushland.

This book gives detailed descriptions of the district's many attractions together with an account of its history and information about accommodation, restaurants, camping and other recreational facilities. Clear maps show all major routes. This is an indispensable guide for tourists and Sydneysiders who want to explore or relax in one of the most beautiful and interesting parts of New South Wales.
