Kangaroo Valley April 2013

Another trip is in the planning stage so I thought I would summarise our previous trips.

  • In May 2007 we went with Andrea and have an album.
  • During 2009 we went twice, in July and October. For the July trip we have a blog post and an album. For the October trip we have an album.
  • During 2010 we also went twice, in May and September/October. For May we have a blog post and an album. For September we have an album.

I’m sure we visited before 2007 but I can’t find any photos. (To get a list of the posts just click on the Kangaroo Valley link at the end of this post). In addition to the previous lists of ‘things to do and take’:

  • take the GPS (the one we took to Europe but didn’t need to use)
  • don’t forget the KV maps+blurbs bag
  • a useful website is KVExplorer


  • The weather was fabulous.
  • The car+trailer went fine.
  • Mobile phone connectivity was much better than last time, including 3G.
  • We did a nice little bush-walk to the Lake Yarrunga Lookout. There are 2 other lookouts nearby which we should try next time.
  • We used 2 black transport bags in the trailer. These are sold to be strapped to car roofs but they fit snugly side-by-side in the trailer. So the large regular-shaped containers, including the eski, went into the trailer while the food and small or odd-shaped things went into the car boot.
