"SCENIC KANGAROO VALLEY" Kangaroo Valley by tiabunna
Kangaroo Valley Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 62 photos
We had visited Kangaroo Valley many years ago with our kids in tow. This time we decided to make it our destination for a short overnight trip to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary.
Back in earlier times, the main industries in the Valley were dairying (with accompanying butter and cheese factories) and timber logging (particularly the valuable Australian Red Cedar). We were told that, back in the early 1900s, the population was over 8,000: today it is about 800!
Tucked between the Budawang Ranges and the coast on a section of the Shoalhaven River, Kangaroo Valley has quite a spectacular setting – which leads to its present popularity as a tourist destination. Unfortunately our anniversary trip coincided with a major bushfire in the Morton National Park, spreading smoke everywhere. The photos suffered, but I guess it provides the excuse for a return visit some day!
NB: because exchange rates are varying rapidly and substantially, the prices I quote in this page are in $A – I think it best if you do your own conversions! *
