Patonga is a blissful fishing village full of charming cottages. The village sits at the mouth of the Hawkesbury River and is surrounded by Brisbane Water National Park. In fact, it’s the most isolated village on the Central Coast – so you get a real sense of isolation.
Drive to the village over a beautiful windy road through Brisbane Water National Park or even better, embark on a ferry from Palm Beach.
Spend a night or two. Pitch a tent in the campground beside the creek. And relax with one or two delicious handcrafted ales from local breweries at Patonga Beach Hotel. It’s a must.
This village has been a popular holiday destination for Sydney siders for a very long time. Holidaymakers would arrive by ferry before they built a road in the 1930’s.
The village can’t be expanded further. It’s contained by the Hawkesbury River and Brisbane Water National Park.
The village has: An art gallery. A seafood shop. A camping ground. A picnic area. A pub. And lots of water. You can swim in the creek or in the ocean. Across the pub the water is calm.
