Bens Walk

Natural Attractions

Bens Walk is a great place to step out and stretch your legs during a visit to Nowra. The walk loops around the Shoalhaven River, through its gorges, forests and grassy shores.

The walk begins at the Nowra Showground, where you can enjoy a barbecue, and superb elevated views of the river and mountains from Hanging Rock.

The complete track provides a leisurely return walk of about 5.5 kilometres taking around two hours. A short return walk from the footbridge to the Showground and Hanging Rock takes around 10 minutes.

A suspension bridge provides a fun crossing of the river, and also gives access to Depot Farm Reserve and its picnic area.
