On a surprisingly warm and sunny winters day we took a delightful four-wheel drive through the Upper Colo in the Hawkesbury.
We stopped for lunch at a camping ground, which has lots of places for camping, room for the kids to ride their bikes, a river to swim in or picnic by, a swing, and even a stone circle.
At the end of a long day of driving you can sit by the fire and enjoy some pub food and a good ole Aussie beer at the Settlers Arms Inn at St Albans.
After a great day out four-wheel driving through the Upper Colo, we headed back on the ferry (the ferry is free of charge).
