A quick weekend getaway to Wiseman Ferry was a great choice for us as it was only a 90 minutes drive to Sydney. I have been here for a work conference a few years ago and visiting the town again, I really didn’t see any change to it. As mentioned in my previous blog, the town is pretty small. You only have a service station and a few cafe/restaurants and a local supermarket.
Wiseman Ferry is a small and quiet town. It is so remote that the nearest fast food is at least 30 minutes drive away. The one service station there charges a premium for fuel. Same with the supermarket selling the necessities. Restaurants and cafes are also not as of high quality but charge a substantial price to their food. Most people I believe will probably drive out to the bigger towns to find a bigger chain supermarket like Woolworths or Coles to stock up on necessities and fresh food.
We have been to the town twice during our weekend and both times the roads were very quiet. Not many people were walking on the streets. I think mainly this is due to most people don’t live around here and those living around here are on holidays like us or prefer to stay indoors as the town doesn’t have much to offer. Having said all the above, I would still visit again for the few orchards around the area especially summer where there would be more different fruits on offer.
