South Coast Leisure Times : Summer 15-2016
Kangaroo Valley Summer in the valley Kangaroo Valley has been described by many as the most beautiful valley in Australia. It has plenty of accommodation, beautiful escarpments, interesting gift shops, cafes, a pub and a number of restaurants. The Kangaroo Valley Farmers Market is held on the second Sunday of each month from 8.30am until 1pm. It features new and seasonal produce at each market at 165 Moss Vale Road. The Kangaroo Valley Market is held the second Saturday of each month at the showground, starting at 8.30am. This market features a wide range of stalls including local produce, craft, books, food and coffee. Tables and chairs are scattered around for use. There is always live music happening and an open mic available for any budding musicians. The market is run by Shoalhaven Folk Club and the proceeds go towards the annual Kangaroo Valley Folk Festival held in October. Set high on Cambewarra Mountain between Nowra and Kangaroo Valley, the historic teahouse, now a licensed gourmet cafe is a wonderful experience. The lookout encompasses a stunning panorama of the Shoalhaven, stretching from Coolangatta Mountain in the north down to Pigeon House Mountain in the south. The view also takes in Point Perpendicular and Jervis Bay National Park. Plenty of wildlife inhabits the area, including king parrots, kookaburras and lyrebirds. Wedge tailed eagles can be seen soaring overhead. On dusk, it’s not uncommon to see a wombat or two ambling across the lawn. The cafe itself offers a fresh food menu and favourites like scones with jam and cream, milkshakes and coffee. Diners can eat indoors or alfresco on the deck. A historic display reveals some insights into days of old. The Kangaroo Valley Pioneer Village Museum is a place family and friends can enjoy a picnic, a bush walk and wander through the museum. Visitors can step back into the 19th century with historic buildings, saddlery, settler’s hut and forge, all set in a magnificent park with free barbecue facilities for museum visitors. The buildings are built to the standards of the late 19th and early 20th centuries and stocked with artefacts from that era. The museum has talking history and visual displays. Visit the dairy, forge, school house, settler’s cottage, Archie Chittick Museum, war remembrance room and much more. Another two hectares of natural bushland is available for bushwalking along designated tracks.
