About Wisemans Ferry
Wisemans Ferry is a town north of Sydney, in
the state of New South Wales, Australia.
Wisemans Ferry is located 75 kilometres north-
west of the Sydney central business district in
the local government areas of Hornsby Shire,
The Hills Shire, City of Hawkesbury and City
of Gosford. Wisemans Ferry is a tourist spot
with picnic and barbecue facilities. As well as
a rich convict and colonial heritage in the area,
the Dharug National Park and Yengo National

Today, two ferry services cross the Hawkesbury
River from the town of Wisemans Ferry. The
eponymous Wisemans Ferry crosses the river
to a point down-stream of its confluence with
the Macdonald River, connecting with the old
Great North Road. Webbs Creek Ferry crosses
to a point upstream of the confluence,
connecting with the St Albans Road that follows
the west bank of the Macdonald River.
