A pleasant bushwalk along the Shoalhaven River & Creeks
This walking track retraces part of a walk which was established during the depression years by Ben Walsh. It has been planned and constructed by the Crown Lands Office in conjunction with the Shoalhaven City Council and other interested persons and organisations The track commences at the Shoalhaven Showground. Superb views of the river, golf course and mountain scenery can be enjoyed from vantage points along the way. From Hanging Rock, the track descends the cliff face and follows the Nowra Creek beneath huge sandstone boulders and eroded shelves.
A suspension bridge has been constructed to provide a loop walk on both sides of the creek and to give access to Depot Farm Recreation Reserve and picnic area.If you wish, you may continue on to the upper tidal limit of Nowra Creek, returning via the swimming holes at Platform Rock and Big Rock and thence back towards the suspension bridge along the cliff line and on to Hanging Rock. The track then rejoins the main route, following Scenic Drive until it reaches the track head at the Shoalhaven River Bridge The complete track provides a leisurely return walk of about 5.5 kms taking about 2 hours.
