Who We Are


Riverfront Real Estate specialises in the Sale and Leasing of waterfront properties and land along the Hawkesbury River and Berowra Waters. Many of these unique river settlements have no road access and can only be reached by boat, ensuring your privacy and seclusion. Without suburban pollution or traffic, this majestic river is spectacularly beautiful. Remarkably, the price of waterfront property along the Lower Hawkesbury River remains very attractive.

Enjoy the unique lifestyle of a waterfront home. With a boat at your front door and over 4,000 square kilometres of shoreline and 200 navigable kilometres of water to explore in one of the world’s most scenic, natural waterways – it’s the ideal locale for a fabulous holiday home or sea change.

As River Residents ourselves, we know the area better than most and will be only too happy to show you around this beautiful area that we proudly call home. So don’t delay – make yourself at home with Riverfront Real Estate.
