The Hawkesbury Paddlewheeler

Cruises, Sailing and Water Tours

The Hawkesbury region experienced severe flooding in March 2021, which caused extensive damage to properties and infrastructure along the Hawkesbury River. Wharves at Windsor and Lower Portland were totally destroyed, though the Hawkesbury Paddlewheeler itself sustained no damage. Unfortunately, all cruises are currently on hold until maritime and the local councils can find a suitable wharf to operate from.

The Hawkesbury Paddlewheeler has been operating for many years from historic Windsor, which is located at the end of the Windsor Road on one of the oldest waterways in Australia, the Hawkesbury River. Your host Ian and his friendly crew will take you on an unforgettable journey recreating cruises back in the 1800s. While enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the Hawkesbury River you can indulge in a first class meal, always being freshly prepared on board.

The Paddlewheeler is the perfect venue for any occasion. Catering for weddings, dinner cruises, corporate functions, private functions, birthday parties, anniversaries, hen’s nights, Christmas parties, engagements, yulefest, Christmas in July, seniors lunches and more.


From $20 to $40

The Hawkesbury Paddlewheeler leaves every Sunday at 12.30pm for a two hour cruise along the Hawkesbury River.

A barbecue lunch is served while the resident band performs songs from their wide range of music.
