Walking Track Description
Halfway between Moss Vale and Kangaroo Valley in the leafy Southern Highlands are the Morton National Park and the Meryla State Forest. Wedged within the two reserves is Fitzroy Falls, one of NSW’s most popular tourist destinations for over 150 years.
Flowing through the national park is Yarrunga Creek, which drops 80 metres to the floor of the valley below and eventually makes its way to the Kangaroo River.
There are two easy walks around Fitzroy Falls, following the east and west rim of the valley enclosing the walls. Both walks follow the cliff walls south and offer breathtaking views back towards Fitzroy Falls from lookouts that hang out over the valley.
Both walks are worth doing as the terrain they take in is quite different. The west walk is the easier of the two and offers more lookouts along the way. The track is slippery at times but generally easy going if you take it easy. The full West Rim Track terminates at Twin Falls about 2km from the Visitor Centre.
The east rim walk, also known as the Wildflower Walk, deviates away from the cliff for much of its 1.5km and winds down into a lush, bird-filled rainforest before climbing back up to north-facing lookout.
