Plan a getaway to Kangaroo Valley this spring.  With a diverse range of events for every type of leisure seeker, it’s easy to plan your stay around something special.

If your perfect afternoon is kicking back with a craft beer and watching pigs race, the famous Kangaroo Valley Craft Beer and Barbecue festival is for you.  If Canoeing with a side of canapés and cold climate wines is more your speed, a special trip out on Lake Yarrunga will satisfy your craving for adventure and indulgence.

Sophisticates will love the Wildwood x Cherry Moon High Tea. Enjoy a smorgasbord of delicacies from local producers (all with an Aussie bush twist) along with local wines, beers and spirits, set in the beautiful surrounds of Wildwood.

Learn to cook like a fine dining chef at one of Hampden Deli’s popular Cook and Dine classes: sharpen your skills at a filleting and sashimi class or roll like an Italian and learn gnocchi and tortellini. Or book in for an intimate six course dinner showcasing the best of the Shoalhaven Coast.

Like taking in contemporary art? The four-day Visual Arts in the Valley festival is where you want to be on the October long weekend.

Music lovers of all ages enjoy the Kangaroo Valley Folk Festival for its relaxed atmosphere, gorgeous music, joyful dance and inspiring poetry.

Spotted a lyrebird dashing into the bush? Learn something about their magic and raise some funds for local Landcare at a special screening of The Message of the Lyrebird.

And don’t miss the last Highland Valley Forage, a unique experience exploring the stunning Three Views Walking Track and enjoying a 10-course degustation lunch at special stations along the route.

The regular farmers markets and makers markets are a lovely way to meet and support local artisans and producers, and take home something special from a memorable time away.

Don’t forget to take your selfie with the historic Hampden Bridge, sample the local cafes and pick up a gift for a loved one (or yourself!) at the interesting boutiques on the high street.

In Spring, the blossom trees and magnolias are in bloom but it’s still crisp enough in the evenings to while away some time by a fire. A range of accommodation to suit every group and budget is available in the valley, from luxury stays to a cosy country cottage, bargain camping or family caravan park.
