The Grotto Walk

A large overhanging rock called the Grotto has given its name to this walk.

The steep entrances zigzag down 45 metres from the cliff-tops to the banks of the Shoalhaven River. An easy two kilometre loop track, the walk passes 4 clifftop lookouts, and traverses through an old farm and orchard.
