Minnamurra Rainforest Loop Walk | Hiking for Kids


Overview

This is a short and easy walk especially for children and starters. The Rainforest Loop Walk is just takes 1 hour to complete. But we will access The Falls walk which will take an additional 1 hour and we can see the falls as well.

There will not be any car pooling planned on this hike because most cars will be carrying kids. But you can plan the car pools on individual basis, Sydhikers won’t help on Car Pooling this time.

Meetup Point

We will meet at the Minnamurra Rain Forest Centre car park. Please note that there are limited parking spaces there so try to reach early to get hold of parking.

Minnamurra Rainforest Centre is located in the foothills of the Jamberoo Valley, west of Kiama on the NSW Coast. To get there from Jamberoo drive west on Jamberoo Road and turn left onto Jamberoo Mountain Road. Take the first right onto Minnamurra Falls Road and you’ll find Minnamurra Rainforest Centre located 3km along to the end of the road.

  • I have a 2.5yo and a 4.3yo. Would 4.3yo be okay for the hike and the 2.5yo on baby carrier?

  • I mean I’m okay doing the hike with 2.5yo in baby carrier but not sure about the 4.3yo – any age limit?
