Get­ting there

Kan­ga­roo Val­ley is lo­cated in the rolling hin­ter­land of the NSW Shoal­haven re­gion, about 160km south of Syd­ney, ac­cessed via Moss Vale Road.

Where to stay

There are nu­mer­ous camp­sites along both the Kan­ga­roo and Shoal­haven rivers, as well as a range of ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tions through­out Kan­ga­roo Val­ley, in­clud­ing mo­tels, self-con­tained cab­ins and cot­tages, B&Bs, guest­houses, farm stays and car­a­van parks.

What to do

Kan­ga­roo Val­ley Sa­faris of­fers self-guided itin­er­ar­ies for ex­plor­ing the lo­cal wa­ter­ways by kayak or ca­noe, rang­ing from a few hours to a few days. These can in­clude drop-offs and pick-ups at var­i­ous points along the wa­ter­ways.

For those more in­clined to dry-land ex­pe­ri­ences, the nearby Three Views walk­ing track in Mor­ton NP is an ac­ces­si­ble 9.5km re­turn bushwalk with – as the name sug­gests – three prom­i­nent cliff-edge view­ing points that in­clude look­outs over Lake Yar­runga, the Tal­lowa Dam and Shoal­haven Gorge.

There are plenty of coastal ac­tiv­i­ties within easy reach of a week­end base in Kan­ga­roo Val­ley, in­clud­ing world-class snorkelling at Jervis Bay and the fa­mous surf breaks of Mol­ly­mook Beach. More info
