Fitzroy Falls

In the rugged Southern Highlands within Morton National Park, discover the beauty and grandeur of Fitzroy Falls, a spectacular waterfall that dramatically drops more than 80 metres. Fitzroy Falls is two hours’ drive from Sydney or Canberra and 60 minutes from Wollongong.

ou’ll find plenty of parking at the Fitzroy Falls Visitor Centre, which has a cafe, souvenir shop, and information on local Aboriginal history and wildlife in the park. From the visitor centre, there’s a short wheelchair-accessible boardwalk to scenic views of the plunging waterfall.

After appreciating the magnificent falls, explore the enchanting wilderness on well-marked walking tracks. The East Rim and Wildflower walking tracks will take you to lookouts with superb views, while the West Rim walking track offers wonderful vistas of gorges and waterfalls

Enjoy sweeping views across Kangaroo Valley at the Manning lookout, which is eight minutes’ drive southeast of the Fitzroy Falls Visitor Centre. The lookout on the sandstone escarpment is a short walk through bushland from the free carpark. There are picnic tables near the lookout.

Cycling is another popular pursuit. Navigate the Fitzroy Falls to Kangaroo Valley cycling route, a challenging 30km journey to the village of Kangaroo Valley in one of Australia’s most beautiful valleys. Keep an eye out for wallabies, kangaroos and birdlife. You can camp at Griffins Farm.

The picturesque hamlet of Fitzroy Falls contains a few dozen homes surrounded by rich farmland. You can stay at the Twin Falls Bush Cottages or in the neighbouring towns of Bowral, Bundanoon and Robertson, all perfect for enjoying the region’s food, wine and heritage.
