The Riverbend Restaurant serves modern Australian cuisine with a difference. We change our menu regularly to incorporate the freshest seasonal produce – locally produced wherever possible. To accompany your dining experience, Riverbend Restaurant boasts a wine list that showcases a selection of Australian and New Zealand wines to perfectly complement your meal. Why not try one of our jazz lunches – every second month on a Sunday enjoy a 2 course lunch listening to the greats of Australian jazz.

Only one hour from Sydney ,The Retreat at Wisemans is the ideal Sydney conference venue, with a dedicated conference centre that enables you to train and learn, and undertake development programs, team building and business planning sessions, while experiencing the recreational facilities the Retreat offers.

An extensive range of recreational activities and facilities are offered on-site including:

  • Golf course
  • Tennis courts
  • Badminton
  • Swimming pool
  • Croquet
  • Beach volleyball
  • Petanque


Wisemans Ferry Golf Club is a picturesque par 69 9 holes golf course which lies along the banks of the Hawkesbury River surrounded by four national parks. Its tree-lined fairways place a premium on accuracy and the alternative tees provide added challenges for the back 9.

The course was designed by Terry Watson and Norm Carr to be enjoyed by golfers of all standards, but its numerous bunkers, water hazards and of course nature itself, command focus for even the experienced golfer.

Although the course is flat and an easy walk, golf carts are available. Clubs and trolleys can also be hired from the golf shop. If you are looking to escape the city the club is only an hour’s drive north of Sydney. The golf course is open to non-members.


A tranquil haven just an hour from Sydney, this boutique meetings facility is easily accessible yet sufficiently far away from the office. The environment is ideal for training, learning and development programs, team building and business planning sessions.

The Retreat offers highly personalised service and the flexibility to meet your individual requirements.

  • Dedicated conference facilities, specially designed to maximise the meeting’s effectiveness
  • Flexible but unobtrusive service and attention to detail, enabling the facilitator to concentrate on running the meeting
  • Extensive grounds for outdoor activities
  • Very high standard of catering cuisine
  • Wide range of on-site leisure facilities.
