With the Easter Holidays just beginning, Berowra Living History thought it was the perfect time to look back at holidaying around Easter, and particularly at Berowra. Although many now head further afield for their Easter break, Berowra and the scenic Berowra Waters were once popular holiday destinations. Berowra was mentioned in many publications as a wonderful place to spend a day, or longer over the Easter break. The article above is just one example, appearing on March 12, 1936 in The Farmer And Settler. This was one month before Easter Sunday fell (which in 1936 was April 12), and gave prospective tourists plenty of time to plan their trips!

    Wow! I keep finding memories of the past. Seeing the pic of Jim Hatfield and George Thompson reminds of what I think was called the Berowra Younger Set who met at the old hall at Mt. Kuring-gai next door to where I once lived. I have a feeling that Jim started this club. How fast those years have gone. Jim and George were a little older than I was but Freddie was around my age and remember going to the Royal Easter Show. We walked across the bridge and missed the last train from Hornsby so walked home from Hornsby and boy was I in trouble!! I left the Hornsby area more than 35 years ago so it is great to see familiar names. Just a few people I recall from those days are Pat McCredie, Neil Davis, Arnold Hamilton and his sister Melva and Eileen, and of course Freddie, Jim and Thea and George. I am now aged 83 yrs. and the only surviving member of my family and would love to hear from anyone who remembers me. Helen Wood nee Dorsman. Email edgewater1@bigpond.com
