Grotto Walk

Natural Attractions

On the banks of the Shoalhaven River in North, Nowra access from Yurunga Drive is The Grotto. Whilst access to The Grotto is steep in parts, the walk is short and the ambience of the reserve more than makes up for any effort expended. Take a picnic and spend some time watching the beautiful Shoalhaven River, from a superb vantage point.

A large overhanging rock called the Grotto has given its name to this walk. This is a beautiful walk with steep entrances that zigzag down 45 metres from the cliff-tops to the banks of the Shoalhaven River. The walk is a two kilometre loop track taking between one to two hours depending on whether you visit all of the four lookouts at the top of the cliffs.

The walk passes through an old farm and orchard which belonged to John Hanson in the 1920s.
