Booked our kayaks with Bob online. Bob was prompt with all questions and it was a delight to meet him at Parsley Park. Good instruction was given plus maps, waterproof bag and a great smile.Thanks Bob.

We had a great 2 day kayak through the Hawkesbury, camping overnight at Twin Beaches. Bob from HRK was exceptional - he was very friendly, full of great suggestions and very prompt at getting back to us. I would definitely recommend hiring kayaks through HRK!

Lovely guy managing us all. We were a group of 6, some doing a day trip and some camping and he was super flexible. Beautiful to be out doing activities on the Hawkesbury, would recommend!

Fantastic location with amazing scenery. Kayaking to the cafe on Dangar Island was a great tip and well worth it.

We had a great time kayaking as a group of 6 on the river. Bob was awesome: he brought the kayak directly onto the beach and came back to pick them up at the same sport. He indicated the best places to reach via kayak...More

Train goes directly to Brooklyn from central station. Brooklyn is known as "Hawkesbury river" railway station. Take the Newcastle and central line, one hour. Short walk to parsley bay. Cheers
