Berowra Waters has an interesting history starting with it’s name…
The Berowra Waters area was originally inhabited by the Darug and Guringai Aboriginal peoples. The name Berowra is said to be an Aboriginal word meaning place of many winds.
During the 1800s, Berowra Creek was used intermittently by loggers and fishermen who camped along its banks. Following the construction of the northern railway line and station at Berowra, the area’s population grew steadily and soon Berowra Heights and Berowra became fully formed townships. The rugged terrain and natural barriers of the landscape allowed Berowra Waters to survive relatively untouched by large scale development and today the town consists of a smattering of waterfront residences.
Berowra Creek, which is a major tributary of the Hawkesbury River, is the most famous landmark of the district. Flowing for around thirty kilometres through Berowra Waters and south to Pennant Hills, the creek remains an ever popular waterway, luring visitors from all over Sydney who enjoy boating, fishing, swimming and picnicking beside the water. Berowra Creek cuts through rocky gorges and spectacular, unspoilt wilderness areas including Marramarra National Park, Muogamarra Nature Reserve and Berowra Valley Regional Park.
