Nestled between Cambewarra and Barrengary Mountains, the beautiful Kangaroo Valley offers many activities. Experience the serenity of superb bush walking, horse riding, canoeing and swimming in the natural beauty of the area. The historic Hampden Bridge, over the Kangaroo River, was constructed in 1898 and is the oldest and probably most photographed suspension bridge in Australia.
Perhaps one of the most scenic drives on the South Coast is the beautiful winding drive from the base of Cambewarra Mountain and up the pass to Kangaroo Valley. Taking in lush rainforest ferns and timbers the drive provides outstanding views over the coastal plateau and ocean below. Sitting like a mountain pocket, the Valley is fringed by towering mountains all around and has a naturally lush ecosystem that includes beautiful morning mists and a plethora of birdlife.
Originally called Kangaroo Ground by surveyor James Heehan, the name underwent a gradual change through the 1840's to its current form. Historic Kangaroo Valley village is charming and well geared for visitors, with art and souvenir galleries, several cafes, a delightful stone pub, some unique handicraft stores and plenty of good quality local holiday accommodation.
Hampden Bridge, with its famous stone turrets, provides commanding views over the winding river below. Built over the Kangaroo River in 1898, it is the oldest suspension bridge in Australia and is Kangaroo Valley's most famous and most photographed landmark. Activities include some well-graded bushwalks, cycling, canoeing (solo or escorted) and general relaxation.
