Kangaroo Valley is nestled between the Southern Highlands and NSW South Coast, about two hours’ drive from both Sydney and Canberra. 

Take the Princes Highway down the coast or inland via the Hume Highway.  Use the map to the right to get directions from your location. 


From Sydney, you can take the train to Moss Vale Station (1h 42m) and then a bus to Fitzroy Falls and on to Kangaroo Valley.

From other destinations and for a variety of options, visit the Transport NSW Journey Planner.

There are options for all tastes and budgets for Festival goers coming from near and far.

Unfortunately, camping is not allowed at the Showground festival site but other options are close by as listed below:

A stones throw or a slight stagger from the Festival Showground you will find camping and cabins at Glenmack Park.  It's a great place for the family with a pool and activities for kids.

Cabins and limited camping are also available at Kangaroo Valley Holiday Park near Hampden Bridge about 1.7 km  and a flat walk from the festival site.  

Free camping is available at Bendeela Campground, 8km from the village, along Bendeela Rd.  Bookings are not required.   Amenities are basic (toilets but no showers). Please drive slowly at night because there is a lot of wildlife on the road.  On  Saturday a free shuttle bus will run between Bendeela and the festival site.



Cabins are available at Kangaroo Valley Golf & Country Resort, 390 Mt Scanzi Road,  4.5 km from the festival site.

Kangaroo Valley Pioneer Motel is being renovated and might be ready for the festival, but is not taking bookings.  We are in touch with the owner and will provide an update if bookings become available.

Kangaroo Valley has many other accommodation options including motels, B&B’s and holiday cabins.  Renting a cottage for the weekend is a very economical option for groups.  For more information visit Kangaroo Valley Tourist Association Kangaroo Valley Getaways or Kangaroo Valley Stays.

Accommodation is also listed on HomeAway and Wotif.

The nearest large town with a selection of motels and cabins is Nowra/Bomaderry, a delightful 25 minutes drive south over Cambewarra Mountain
