MACKYS

If you plan to arrive by own trailer boat up to 6m with an engine capacity greater than 30hp, there are many more areas in the Hawkesbury River network for you to explore.

From Milsons Passage you can travel down stream to Dangar Island , Brooklyn, and into Cowan Waters  where Cottage Point, Bobbin Head , Refuge Bay & Jerusalem Bay are located

We wil provide additional information suited to you / your boat

NOTE that a few times a year tides during part of the day are lower then a 0.3m . When this occurs the foreshore water  by the MACKY pontoon is too shallow  to manouvre a std trailer boat . So guests need to plan around not approaching or departing the jetty for approx 1.5 hrs either side of the low . As long as skipper checks tides for the paned stay it is easy to work around these few  days of super low tide
