Sentry Rock on Hawkesbury River
Sentry Rock on Hawkesbury River
Perched on 10 acres on the banks of the Hawkesbury River, Sentry Rock offers a luxurious retreat for the adventurer in all of us! This soaring timber structure sits in a beautiful natural escarpment, surrounded by stunning natural scenery as far as the eye can see. With six beautiful bedrooms, 12 guests will have the chance to experience a dream location, perfect for nature lovers who want a bit of extra luxury!
This magnificent log home perfectly encapsulates its setting, with burnt orange slabs of wood in the construction popping out against lush green forestry and the rushing water of the river. Inside, this earthy retreat feels truly connected to its landscape, making use of natural materials to create a living space that’s all at once welcoming and lavish. After days of natural exploration, spend leisurely evenings resting by the grand stone fireplaces as roaring flames warm you, surrounded by natural and antique furnishings and works of art.
The expansive kitchen has everything you need to make sure your taste buds are well satisfied. Take advantage of state of the art appliances plus wonderful additions such as an authentic pizza oven. Guests will love grabbing a glass of wine from the wine cellar, carved into natural rock inside the house, and then settling in at the sleek breakfast bar for a front row seat watching the master chef at work!
With six bedrooms, four of them featuring en-suite bathrooms, everyone will feel pampered and relaxed when they head to their private retreat. Five bedrooms feature plush king-sized beds, while the sixth offers two twins. Each room is decorated in a rustic, elegant style, with log walls that instantly comfort you as you sink into incredibly high-quality linens and bedding. The bathrooms are just as luxurious, featuring deep soaking tubs and spacious walk-in showers for extra relaxation.
While this property exudes adventure, it offers more than its share of serenity as well. After a day at a national park, sink into the waters of your private heated pool, situated overlooking sweeping views of the river, or just stake your claim at one of many chaise lounges on the deck. If you need some extra rejuvenation, there’s also a private Jacuzzi and sauna for your use.
Making your way to Sentry Rock is an experience in itself. Located just outside Sydney near Wisemans Ferry, Sentry Rock can be accessed by road, boat, helicopter, and seaplane. You’ll be hard-pressed to find another property that promises so much seclusion and serenity that’s so easily accessed from Sydney. Boat transfers are available from Palm Beach, Pittwater and throughout the Hawkesbury. Seaplane transfers are available from Sydney Harbour. Many of Sydney’s best waterfront restaurants are easily accessed from Sentry Rock, with transfers available on this property’s luxury sports boat. Private berths can be made available to accommodate up to a superyacht size.
The areas surrounding the Hawkesbury River offer so much activity to take advantage of. Whether you’re exploring the adjoining National Park or hitting up a favorite fishing spot, you’re sure to find an adventure that suits everybody’s needs. Go to Australia Walkabout Wildlife Park to experience an authentic look at Aboriginal life, or just walk outside your front door, grab a kayak and explore the waters of Hawkesbury River.

Fabulous home in a one-of-a-kind location
What a beautiful location and home! Thank you, Louise for being such a gracious and helpful host. We were unfamiliar with the area and are so very appreciative of the time and effort you made to help us get our bearings and feel at home. Our traveling group of 8 were all so very comfortable in the lodge - the bedrooms and en suite baths were top notch, the kitchen was very well appointed and even stocked with some staple items to get us started. When were weren't out enjoying the river and local area attractions and wineries, we were at the lodge enjoying the comfortable lounge areas, the pool and the dock for some fishing. We couldn't have asked for a better way to start our first trip to Australia and now can't wait to come back!”
Not your average log cabin!
We had a wonderful time at Sentry Rock. The house is huge and well appointed and easily accommodated our group of 10 adults. We loved the pool and big verandas overlooking the river. The area is very quiet and undeveloped, surrounded by National Parks but less than 2hrs drive from Sydney. An amazing place to experience. Thanks to the owners and Third Home for a great holiday.”
