A Bit of History

Aborigines were the beginning of Berowra’s settlement. This is recorded in their rich collection of rock carvings, cave paintings and shell middens. There are more than 100 of these sites in the Berowra district. The latest evidence from carbon dating remains found below Nepean gravel beds indicate that the aborigines have been in the Hawkesbury area for at least 47,000 years.

The Darug and Guringai tribes of this area were unfortunately hit hard by small pox and diseases brought in by the First Fleet when they arrived and settled in the area around 1788.

George Peat, the Crumptons, Crosslands, George Collingridge and Jack Smith were the pioneer settlers (1830s to 1890s) in this area. Any account of the village/town/suburb or Berowra, however, must begin in 1879 with Mary Wall, who settled on 60 acres fronting the (now) Pacific Highway (near Waratah Road).

From the 1930s people like Rex Jones, Arthur Lubeck, the Windybank family, C.J. Turner and Roy Corrigan fostered tourism. Berowra’s Golden Age of Tourism was throughout the 1930s and continued during the war. The steam trains brought thousands of people to Berowra Waters. Coaches, hire cars, private cars and buses competed for fares.

And so the development of Berowra Waters continued through the wars and to what we have today. With a lot of “hidden”gems around the place including Aboriginal middens, paintings, carvings as well as Bar Island, the wreak of the HMAS Parramatta and our secret fresh water pool, a guided tours will enlighten you to all of Berowra Waters secrets….well maybe not all!

As Mike Joffe (Author of Yarns & Photos) points out -“No other suburb has the following combination: surrounded on all sides by bush; its own natural boundaries of water valleys and ridges; National Parks and many walking trails; its own Freeway, railway and Pacific Highway; the optimum 700 feet above sea level for good health; the right distance to get the sea air and the mountain air; its own modern shopping centre; plus Hornsby, plus only one hour from the Opera House Car Park, plus the Hawkesbury River.”

                            CHECK IN AND CHECK OUT TIMES
                            Please check in FROM 2pm on the date of arrival. Once you have nominated an arrival time, if you are likely to be delayed, notify us immediately so that we can re-schedule the boat transportation. When you leave, Check out is no later than 10.30am. This allows our housekeepers sufficient time to clean the rooms for the next guest. Your understanding is highly appreciated.

                            IF YOU HAVE TO CANCEL
                            A full refund of any bonds/ deposits paid will be made if your booking is cancelled more than 21 days out from the booking start date.

                            100% of the bond is retained if you cancel within 7 days out from the booking start date. However you may re-book another date at no loss of funds within 12 months of original booking , subject to availability.

                            POSTPONEMENT OR DATE CHANGES
                            Should your requirements change, and you wish to change the date of your booking to an alternative date either prior to or after the original booking, we are happy to transfer the balance of any deposits paid to alternative dates within the next 12 months, subject to availability. NB We will only accept one postponement request from the date of the original booking.
