The Hawkesbury River Express is a relaxing day tour behind a heritage diesel locomotive through the spectacular Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park to the gateway of Sydney’s hidden scenic waterways – the Hawkesbury River and Brisbane Water. From here you will have the option to combine your train ride with a lunch cruise aboard the famous Riverboat Postman, alight at Woy Woy to board the MV Saratoga on selected trips for a cruise to Davistown for lunch, or alight at Hawkesbury River, Woy Woy or Gosford to enjoy your own activities.

The Riverboat Postman still provides a vital mail service to the bays and inlets of the Hawkesbury River, and now doubles as a tourist experience including a Ploughman’s lunch, complete with commentary from the skipper. The MV Saratoga undertakes a 1.5-hour cruise of Brisbane Water before stopping for lunch at the Broadwater Restaurant at Davistown RSL. Our train is also equipped with a licensed buffet serving tea, coffee, alcoholic refreshments and snacks throughout the trip, returning to Sydney by around 5:50pm.
