We came into this place when we went to the Kangaroo Valley and was our first stop in the journey.
It is a relaxing and invigorating place surrounded with thick and vast vegetation with the Fitzroy Falls as the main attraction. It was named after New South Wales Governor Fitzroy who visited the place in 1850 and named the place after him.
The Fitzroy Falls is a natural with spectacular beauty falls lie in the path of the Yarrunga Creek, which drops over 80 metres down the escarpment, and flows on into the Kangaroo River. Today, it’s one of the many tourist attractions in the area. We too, were amazed at the awesome beauty of the falls and we had heaps of photos taken at the view deck overlooking it and the surrounding mountains and the river down below.
The Visitors’ Centre is situated in a wildlife reserve. There are displays of flora and fauna and the works of the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, tourist information, picnic area, toilets, and a cafe.
This was another glimpse of the southern highlands south of Sydney, stunning and captivating. It’s a place that provokes one’s enthusiasm to revisit the place once again. As I was writing this topic and posting it in my blog, coincidentally the program of the station on Getway I was watching on TV was Fitzroy Falls and Kangaroo Valley surroundings. Oh, awesome, right?
