Kangaroo Creek – A hidden gem in Audley
After a scrumptious breakfast at the Audley Dancehall Cafe (buttermilk pancakes and a damn good barista made cappuccino), it’s time to make your way across the famous white bridge at Audley. Once over the bridge, head right towards the signpost for Robertson Roundabout near Currawong Flat picnic area. Continue up the stairs and you’ll soon be on top of the ridge with views of the Hacking River and the Royal National Park. Once at the fork take the track to the right to Kangaroo Creek. Continue along this track until you reach the metal stairs and you’ll know you’re almost there! Once reaching Kangaroo Creek you’ll come to a grand opening with a gorgeous creek to swim in or picnic by with the sounds of nature to relax.
It’s about a 40 minute walk each way to Kangaroo Creek. This relatively medium grade walk has a few inclines and fantastic lookouts of the Hacking River as well as great local bush vistas along the way to take in. Allow 2 hours return to enjoy this special place, swimming is a must in the warmer days, or cooler days if you want to brave it! Once you’ve finished your time at the creek take the same track back for your return journey.
Don’t feel like walking there? Hire out a row boat from across the river and paddle there instead. An equally stunning way to see what the Royal National Park and Audley has to offer!
