Kangaroo Valley Safaris
Setting the Standard since 1993… Kangaroo Valley Safaris offer Canoe and Kayak Trips. Half day, full day and multi-day Camping Safaris, into Morton National Park, the best way to see the wildlife of the area. Here for a day ?
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.
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.
Cooks Nose walking track is in Barren Grounds Nature Reserve. It is a well marked track that is steep in places. You will be rewarded with amazing views over Wattamolla and Kangaroo Valley. Barren Grounds Nature Reserve is always open but may have to close at times due to poor weather or fire danger.
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.
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.
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.
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.
