Kangaroo Valley is one of Australia’s most beautiful valleys with a tranquil river, verdant farms, enchanting wilderness and a delightful village. Two hours’ drive from both Sydney and Canberra, the valley in the Shoalhaven region of NSW is a popular destination for kayaking, canoeing, golf and wine tasting. The Kangaroo River flows through the secluded valley, nestled between the Southern Highlands and the South Coast. You will find plenty of places to stay, ranging from luxury spa retreats to holiday cottages and campgrounds. And as the name already implies, there is plenty of wildlife to watch in the mornings or around sunset hours.
