Kayak in exquisite Berowra Waters to campground on beachside at the foot of Mount Shuttle on Berowra Creek, near the mouth to the Hawkesbury River, returning the next day. With spectacular parks to the east, the Berowra Valley Regional Park to the west, and the mighty Hawkesbury River to the north, Berowra Waters is Sydney at its natural bushland and aquatic best. Watch out for all the wildlife you can encounter close up and personal. Campsite includes drop toilets and a lovely little sandy beach. However this is a challenging paddle as we may be paddling against the tide for some of the trip.
