Fitzroy Falls to Kangaroo Valley
Starting from the car park near the Fitzroy Falls Visitor Centre on Nowra Road, Fitzroy Falls, this walk takes you to the historic town of Kangaroo Valley. This moderately challenging walk begins near the magnificent Fitzroy Falls, one of NSW's most iconic waterfalls, and takes walkers to the picturesque village of Kangaroo Valley, showcasing the best of Morton National Park along the way. The trail is most often used for mountain biking but is also suitable for walking and running. It can be completed in a day with the option of camping overnight at Griffins Farm. The walk initially follows the Red Hills Fire Trail alongside the West Rim Track, which offers spectacular views of dramatic gorges and waterfalls from several lookouts, then continues through Morton National Park before following the Meryla Fire Trail along the southern boundary of Meryla State Forest. From the top of Meryla Pass, the walk descends steeply along the Griffins Fire Trail past the Gales Flat Campground, then crosses Crankeys Creek and meanders through the Yarrunga Creek Valley. After passing Griffins Farm and crossing Yarrunga Creek, the walk follows Jacks Corner Road through Kangaroo Valley, then heads along Bendeela Road past the Kangaroo River Nature Reserve. Further ahead, the walk follows Moss Vale Road, crossing the historic Hampden Bridge before reaching the Kangaroo Valley village, which is home to cafés, restaurants, art galleries, souvenir shops and a heritage-listed pub. This walk consists of wide fire tracks and sealed roads, with compacted natural surfaces, bitumen surfaces, steep hills and creek crossings, suitable for moderate fitness levels. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
