Whether you’re looking for an easy short walk suitable for kids and older people, a more strenuous all day challenge or something in between, you can be sure to find a good selection of walks in Kangaroo Valley. Surrounded by Morton National Park the Valley is blessed with an abundance of pristine wilderness on its doorstep.
An easy bush walk from the car park brings you to an outstanding view of Kangaroo Valley. The sandstone plateau supports forest, woodland and light scrub.
The trees are predominantly stringybark, peppermint, scribbly gum and old man banksia. The many shrubs along the paths include curly sedge, sunshine wattle, broad-leaved hakea, trigger plant and mountain devil.
Griffins Fire Trail, in Morton National Park, starts at the end of Jacks Corner Road in the western part of Kangaroo Valley. The trail passes through tall forest and descends through magical rock gardens to the pristine waters of Yarrunga Creek. After crossing Yurrunga Creek you start to see evidence of old stone walls and a gate post as well as the ruins of an old homestead. A lovely clearing by the creek makes a great lunch spot. Crankeys Creek is a further 1.5k on and another pleasant spot for a break. This is also the turnaround point.
The Kangaroo Valley is approximately 33 kilometres long, east to west and 4-10 kilometres wide. The total area is 256 square kilometres. The Valley has been carved out of the old sediments and volcanics by river erosion from Upper River, Barrengarry and Brogers Creeks. The deposits of this material into the river flats has produced the wonderful fertile soil of the dairy farms in the eastern half of the Valley.
