We have done a day trip up to Fitzroy Falls (Moss Vale Rd, towards Moss Vale) and through Kangaroo Valley. Back to Kangaroo Valley for lunch, then across to Berry and back to the air-con in the caravan.
Such a pretty drive through the mountains. Kangaroo Valley is stunning. Green on green, and then greener.
Lunch at the Kangaroo Valley Hotel was lovely. We enjoyed a leisurely stroll down the main street popping into some of the local shops. The wood crafters shop with rocking horses out the front got out attention as we love all things timber.
The lolly shop was another we couldn't walk past and came out with delicious, cold ice creams in cones.
We then enjoyed a scenic drive to Berry which was much larger than we expected, and tourists certainly know about this spot as it was teeming with people. We drove through but didn't stop. We then took the tourist drive back to Shoalhaven Beach which had signs advising trucks and large vehicles NOT to take this route. It was very twistie, lots of sharp elbow bends, but the scenery was gorgeous. We took our time and found most other drivers on this road were also cautious.
It was well worth the drive.
The Southern NSW Coast is a very beautiful area and well worth an extended stay and look around.
Fitzroy Falls will cost you $4 for day parking. Small price to pay to help maintain the facilities available there.
