So after my adrenaline rushed morning I paid my $12 entry fee and checked out the Minnamurra Rainforest.
The rainforest is in the Buderoo National Park and is where the Minnamurra Falls are. Unfortunately I didn’t get to check them out.
After parking I grabbed some lunch at the café before heading off in the loop walk.

We decided to take our Sunday drive to Sassafras which is 2 hours south of Wollongong or 45 minutes south of Nowra. So why were we going there?
To pick chestnuts of course!! Continue reading “Sassafras Nuts”
One cool autumn day I decided to take a drive up Jamberoo Mountain to the Illawarra Fly Treetop Adventure. Since they opened their zipline track I wanted to go.
So I made the hour long drive and marvelled at the rolling hilled dairy farms.
We decided to go Kayaking in Kangaroo Valley. Which is a 1 hour and 15 minute drive south of Wollongong in the Shoalhaven.
Carrington Falls are located just out of Robertson along Jamberoo Mountain Road. They are in Budderoo National Park, the same National Park as Minnamurra Rainforest. These are about an hour out of Wollongong. These Falls seem to get busy and there is limited parking.
Carrington Falls plunge 130-160 metres across the Kangaroo River. There is a wheelchair friendly lookout or a loop walk of 500 metres with 80 metres of steep stairs. The track is all concrete or steel and very easy. The walk takes about 25 minutes and you find yourself at the top of the falls with a nice little pool.

We also took the short dirt track to Izzards lookout. Which takes you to a viewing platform of endless trees.
There are a few longer tracks at Nellies Glen Picnic area being Missingham lookout and Warris Chair lookout. I also noticed signs to Blue pool.
It is a place that needs more exploring.
Cascades Rainforest Walk is located at the base of Macquarie Pass in the Macquarie Pass National Park. This is a half hour drive from Wollongong at the back of Albion Park. It is at the start of Macquarie Pass which is a windy road that goes up the mountain to Robertson.
