Arts and Culture in Windsor

Windsor is a colonial town set on the lush banks of the Hawkesbury River, famous for its many heritage buildings. Go on the Windsor Heritage Walk to see the beautiful churches and the courthouse designed by convict architect Sir Francis Greenway in the 19th century.

Be sure to visit the Windsor Bridge, the oldest existing crossing on the Hawkesbury and best crossed early in the morning, when a light mist covers the river. Stop for breakfast at one of the town's cafs and browse the many specialty stores to be found here.

Visit the Hawkesbury Museum and Macquarie Arms Hotel on Thomson's Square, a Georgian-style court surrounded by 19th century buildings or take a tour of the Rouse Hill House and Farm, a colonial farm untouched over the last century.

Don't miss the Hawkesbury Regional Gallery, which has on display a thought-provoking range of visual arts, photography and design. The gallery also has regular film screenings, guided tours and children's workshops.
