A Weekend in the Valley

Nestled in amongst the rolling hills of the Kangaroo Valley is the cosy Bedford Bus. This 1976 bus has been transformed into a tiny-home, allowing its visitors to pull-up and wind down for the weekend, listening to all the sounds of the surrounding nature and watch as the clouds disappear into the hills. This gorgeous bus is parked on the lovely host Abby's property and is just a short drive to the popular river swimming hole under Hampden Bridge, and the centre of Kangaroo Valley town.

Over the weekend my friends and I enjoyed sipping on coffee at The General in town, exploring the surrounding townships like Berry and Gerringong, walking along Seven Mile Beach just past Shoalhaven Heads and spending a morning hiking up to the gorgeous Drawing Room Rocks.

Bedford on Scanzi allows you to soak in the peacefulness of the Valley or to relax and recharge. With the perfect balance of country to sea, adventure to chill, this spot makes for a perfect weekend away (Or more...)

Please note: Since this story was published, the Bedford bus has moved to a different, but equally amazing, property just down the road from the original location.

Hike to the top of Drawing Room Rocks
This Grade 4 hike is an absolute must when visiting the area... But please, don't make the mistake I did by wearing my Birkenstock sandals... It takes about an hour to get to the top, but once you do, the view is undeniable. Look over towards Gerringong and the ocean, and soak in the cool winds from the top....
Explore the Township
There is so much to see and do in this gorgeous little town. Grab a beer at The Friendly Inn, walk down to the historic Hampden Bridge and soak in the sounds of cars driving over the bridge....
Manning Lookout
This secret stop is a must before driving down through the Valley. Just a few minutes down from Fitzroy Falls, make a left turn on Manning Lookout Rd and follow it right to the end. This short walk provides jaw dropping views....
