The Cottage & Boathouse Studio


Beautiful accommodation looking out over breathtaking views of the Hawkesbury river. Perfect for romantic getaways, baby-moons or family retreats. Originally built in the 1920s, this cottage haven has been lovingly restored and is the perfect holiday retreat for up to three couples or a family with children. Enjoy your stay in the intimate Boathouse Studio or enjoy the rooms of the cottage house, with french doors from the main and lounge room opening to a large verandah and capturing the morning light and endless river views.

The Gardens & Riverside

The secluded, tranquil gardens and boatshed right on the water's edge offer complete relaxation and a stunning place to celebrate by the river. The outdoor garden table, studio deck and private boatshed are perfect for afternoon drinks before retreating to the cottage for sunset dining. The gardens have been immaculately kept by the owner, Mary, and the lawn includes a gas barbecue. From time to time, we've even had elopements, family celebrations and intimate weddings here!

Things to do while you're here


Staying at Amaroo is mostly about doing nothing. There are, however, a couple of fishing reels, a great collection of books, a stereo and board games to keep you occupied. For those who wish to explore further, you could hire a tinny, pack a picnic or head out to one of the local restaurants. There are many activities to do on the river and around Bar Point. Discover more of these here...



Amaroo was the perfect holiday home. There is no place more tranquil than this. Thank you for a phenomenal weekend!”
