Feeling like taking in a peaceful drive? How about the village of Chatsworth Island?
Chatty as it’s known to locals, is a far cry from the bustling village it once was boasting hotels, retail stores, multiple churches, and even a post office. These days you can still get a great feed from the General store, but the real treat to visit this little riverside village is the tranquility.
If you’ve got little ones, they will love a picnic under the large trees. Over the years gnomes and fairies have gathered in the nooks and crannies of the tree trunks. There’s even a community thong tree! Reuniting missing thongs for decades!
Chatsworth Island lies on the bank of the north Arm of the Clarence River just south of the Mororo Bridges. Some of the original buildings and homes of that period still remain. A detour via the village provides a short scenic and peaceful drive.
