Artist's Description

The Hawkesbury River area of NSW Australia is an ideal spot for boats of all sizes and descriptions – there are many houseboat companies along the river system that hire out something to suit your taste and pocket. I found this one hiding in the mist just as the sun was peaking through … it made the boat look like it was floating on a cloud.

The Hawkesbury River is 120 klms in length with its origin being the Nepean and the Grose Rivers, both major rivers that in turn are fed by other major streams and rivers. The Hawkesbury region has suffered many major floods over many years and while many farms, livelihoods and lives have been lost in its history, the river has provided fertile soil, transportation, employment and tourism to the area and has played a major part in the early days of the colony of NSW.

The Hawkesbury River starts its journey at Richmond and flows north to the river towns of Windsor, Sackville and Lower Portland, where it is joined by the Colo River. From here it continues a northward flow to the community of Wisemans Ferry where it is then joined by the Macdonald River. Here its course turns eastwards and the surrounding landscape gradually becomes steeper and more rugged. At Spencer, Mangrove Creek joins the river from the north. From here to the river mouth, road access to the river is limited to a few points.

At Milsons Passage, the river is joined by Berowra Creek from the south. In the area around Brooklyn the river is crossed by the F3 Freeway and rail services that follow the coast north from Sydney. The river finally reaches the ocean at Broken Bay.

This image was taken with the Nikon D90, Tamron 18-270 mm lens, hand held.
