Welcome to the Hawkesbury Valley a rural community just 45 minutes northwest of Sydney with a population of 65,000. The twin towns of Windsor founded in 1788 situated at the base of the Blue Mountains and Wollemi Park Reserve on the banks of the Hawkesbury River, and Richmond only 6 minutes away founded in 1795, are the commercial centres of the valley. The diversity of the area with its extensive range of historic, agricultural, art, sports grounds and military attractions makes the valley an interesting place to visit suiting people from all walks of life with varied interests.
The Gateway Motel is situated on large acreage lending to a peaceful country feel, yet so handy to all of the thriving Northwest Sydney’s attractions.
