Riverside Oaks and Tourism Portfolio showcase Hawkesbury’s charms

Riverside Oaks and Tourism Portfolio have shown a select group of PCOs why The Hawkesbury is often described as one of New South Wales’ best kept secrets.

Riverside Oaks and Tourism Portfolio showcases Hawksebury_April 2014Just an hour’s drive north-west of Sydney, the region – and Riverside Oaks itself – offers a wide range of outdoor and cultural activities ideal for the meeting and conventions market.

The PCO’s trip started with a visit to Tobruk Sheep Station, a working farm showcasing rural Australia, with animals, rustic buildings, a blacksmiths shop and a Drover’s Camp offering guests warm damper and Billy Tea.

In partnership with East Coast Experiences the group then returned to the resort for a light-hearted ‘Segway Olympics’ featuring obstacle courses, baton relays and time trails.

While some of the group spent the afternoon on Riverside Oak’s championship golf courses, non-golfers enjoyed some environmentally-friendly Laser Clay Shooting (with bullets replaced by laser beams) and cruised the Hawkesbury.

The day ended with dinner at the resort’s recently opened fine dining restaurant, Bungool, which accommodates 60 diners in a beautifully restored 1880’s stone cottage.

Riverside Oaks – represented in Australia by Sydney-based Tourism Portfolio – is currently in the final stages of an exciting expansion program that has seen the addition of 36 new first-class rooms (including six luxury suites), and the first nine holes of a new Bob Harrison-designed golf course.

With the opening of the second nine later this year Riverside Oaks will become Sydney’s only 36-hole championship golf resort.
