For places to stay and things to do in Kangaroo Valley go to
Kangaroo Valley is both pretty and dramatic – remnants of rainforest cling to the steep escarpment, while the Kangaroo River and small creeks criss-cross the valley. It’s perfect for a short break where you’ll find all the right ingredients to relax and unwind at good cafés, galleries, pubs and outdoors. A great spot from which to admire this pretty valley is Belmore Falls, 8km south of Robertson in the Southern Highlands.
From Sydney, take the Hume Hwy and then follow the B73 road through Mittagong and Bowral to get to Kangaroo Valley. From Canberra, take the Hume Hwy north, follow the A48 through Moss Vale and then take the B73 through Fitzroy Falls. (See Google Maps for more detail)
