Kangaroo Valley is a historic town in the northern Shoalhaven. Enjoy scenic bushwalks, galleries, cafes and the famous Hampden Bridge.

The historic town of Kangaroo Valley is nestled between the scenic Cambewarra and Barrengarry Mountains, famous for its country village ambience and spectacular mountain scenery. Kangaroo Valley village is charming, with art galleries, several cafes, a delightful stone pub, some unique handicraft stores and antique shops. The local swimming pool (open October to Easter) is great for a dip on a hot day. 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.

The old Barrengarry Store is a heritage listed shop now known as the Kangaroo Valley Pie Shop, and is just a short drive west of Kangaroo Valley towards Barrengarry Mountain. Claimed to be home to "The World's Best Pies" they also offer great coffee and delicious local treats. With a warm pie in hand, spend some time soaking in the view across the Valley on their front verandah.

Activities in the area include bushwalks, cycling, canoeing and kayaking (solo or escorted) and shopping. Pack a picnic and take a day trip out to Tallowa Dam, a pictureqsue spot and an essential water supply to the Shoalhaven. Another great day trip is an expedition to Flat Rock, Upper Kangaroo Valley. At the end of the walk, you will be rewarded with inviting and natural fresh water pools to take a dip in. Take your lunch and enjoy it on the sun-warmed, flat rocks by the water. Kangaroo Valley has plenty of quality holiday accommodation options including bed & breakfasts, a motel, cottages, cabins and several caravan parks.
