Your guide will take you via Upper Kangaroo Valley Road to go for a little explore to Flat Rock water hole. From here, it s a 15 minute drive to the start of the Three Views Trail walking track.
The Three Views trail has to be one of the easiest, most accessible and rewarding walks in Kangaroo Valley. The trail used to pass through open woodland and sandstone heath vegetation, however after the fires you will be able to see the impact of the devastation. It is, still beautiful to observe the re-growth and views from three separate cliff edge sites with dramatic views over the Shoalhaven gorge towards the Ettrema Wilderness.
