Travelers say: "We had a wonderful time on this tour. The departure point was extremely convenient - only an hour train from the Central Station. Daniel met us at the Brooklyn wharf and then took us over to Milsons passage by boat. We kayaked on the beautiful Hawkesbury river, walked in the bushland behind Milson’s passage, and had a great motorboat tour around the river. The landscape is truly stunning and and incredibly serene. Unlike other areas of natural beauty near Sydney (such as palm beach and the Blue Mountain) the area was pristine and calm. You could really get a sense of what the land was like hundreds or even thousands of years ago. Daniel was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and clearly an experienced guide who knew the land well. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a unique adventure in a truly stunning setting within a convenient distance of the CBD."
