By car[edit]

The car bridges close by to Brooklyn

Easily accessible by the M1 motorway from Sydney to Newcastle. One oddity is that it is better to cross the Hawkesbury River on the motorway, take the turning off and head back south again on the adjacent bridge on the Pacific Highway.

By train[edit]

1 Hawkesbury River Station in on the Sydney to Newcastle line. Despite its name, it is actually located in the middle of Brooklyn town itself. Some express services do not stop here. It is about 40 minutes from Sydney Central Station.

It should be noted that the train bridge can not be walked or biked.

By ferry[edit]

Brooklyn is connected to Little Wobby (to the south of Woy Woy) on the other side of the Hawkesbury River by ferry.

Get around[edit]

Do[edit]

  • 2 Visit Dangar Island. Take a ferry to Dangar Island
  • 3 Bush walk. There is a good trek between Brooklyn and Cowan Train Station via Jerusalem Bay. It takes 3-4 hours, and with no facilities or roads on the way you should ensure that you have packed enough water and food.
