Hampden Bridge is not only a remarkable example of Victoria engineering, but is also a unique demonstration to create an architecturally romanticised structure in a beautiful remote rural location. The combination of wooden suspension bridge and English Medieval towers representing a castle portcullis have contributed to giving the community that live in Kangaroo Valley and all those that cross the Kangaroo River at this point a dramatic sense of place unlike another in Australia.
Kangaroo Valley Kayaks is located at Kangaroo Valley Holiday Park, offering a Kayaking and Canoeing adventure of the Kangaroo River. Kayak under the famous Hampden Bridge, check out the native flora and fauna, soak up the sun, have some fun, all whilst kayaking with Kangaroo Valley Kayaks.
About 1 hectare is dedicated to the Pioneer Settlement Museum, barbeque, parking and toilet facilities. The buildings are built to the standards of the late 19th and early 20th centuries and stocked with artefacts from that era.
The museum has talking history and visual displays. Visit the dairy, forge, school house, settler’s cottage, Archie Chittick Museum, war remembrance room and much more.
Another 7 hectares of natural bushland is available for bushwalking along designated tracks.
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.
The Pioneer Village Museum at Kangaroo Valley is an enjoyable location for family and friends to have a picnic, take a bush walk and wander through the museum.
Open 10am to 4pm

The cattle are Murray Greys - a breed noted for their gentle nature. Kite flying is always a favourite activity, as is badminton on the front lawn. Afterwards a leisurely BBQ lunch with family and friends at the redgum table under the big magnificent Chinese Elm is a great way to relax.
