This is a really beautiful area. It reminds me of Numinbah valley in QLD I ride often, but both are unique places.

From Nowra NSW there is a superb ride from what is basically sea level straight up the side of the two mountains that lie to the northwest. The first particular section of road actually rides very well down hill also because the views are wonderful and you miss them riding up.

I suggest visiting the lookout at the top.

The road climbs again later and the Fitzroy falls are very scenic and I missed the other lookout nearby.

A very scenic area that I will visit again to get better photos in future.

  1. hi chef,
    a couple of good routes to Roo Valley from the north is via the macquarie pass (this is a actually a great climb on a twisty mostly one-laned road – turn off the princes hwy at the albion park roundabout-illawarra highway) or via jamberoo mtn. both routes will take you to the Robertson Pie Shop. From here, you can go through Robertson and turnoff at Pearsons Lane, or further down the illawarra highway at sheepwash road which brings you out near the fitzroy falls.

  2. Thanks very much wizzaofoz I will most certainly have a look next time at those roads.
