Description

About the walk...

As part of the National Parks Association 60 Best Walks, join this beautiful combination of the Griffiths Trail and the Cooks Nose Trail. This is a beautiful walk taking in gorgeous bush around the Barren Grounds area which overlooks Kangaroo Valley. The walk can be steep in sections so ideally some average fitness will assistm in addition this is a long walk of approximatly 12km, we have allowed 5hrs to ensure we can take in all the sights. The walk takes in a beautiful forests and heathland whilst taking in some of the Illawarra's most beautiful lookouts. The reserve is rich in plants and wildlife so we are sure to catch some interesting sights, so bring your camera!

This walk is up to a few hours long allowing plenty of time to take in the bush, meet some new people and enjoy the views.

Full information on the walk, parking and meeting spots will be sent via email to ticketholders.

FAQs

Are there minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Yes, the walk is only available to people over 10 years old so everyone can enjoy the walk to the maximum. It is a long walk so the younger kids might get bored or tired.

Parking is very limited. Please carpool where possible.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No need to print your ticket, I can check you in without it. :)

How long is the walk?

We aim for under 5hrs, but depending on the group and how much fun we are having, this might be more. It's advisable not to schedule anything too close, as we won't be rushing to finish if someone needs to be somewhere.
