Things to see and do
While Hornsby offers some great shopping opportunities and an easy drive to the city, if you’ve picked up a rental car in Hornsby and are eager to see the sights then there are quite a few great scenic drives on offer. Less than an hour north from Hornsby through the picturesque Galston Gorge and out along the Old Northern Road is a tiny village called Wiseman’s Ferry sitting on a bend of the Hawkesbury River. Stop for a drink at the historic sandstone Wiseman’s Ferry Inn and then continue along across the river via a short ferry ride. The road then follows the Hawkesbury River along until it heads up towards Peats Ridge where you can get onto the Pacific Motorway and loop right back down to Hornsby. The greater Sydney region has some great natural beauty that remains untouched by urban development, experience it from the comfort and convenience of a rental car brought to you by Skedaddle.
