Drawing Room Rocks is nature's Drawing Room, with tables and chairs made of rock. It's a stunning place for a picnic and a great walk within two hours' drive of Sydney where you can chill out surrounded by natural treasures that hardly anyone knows about. The hike is not a long one at 4.5 kilometres return, and will take a walker of average fitness about two and a half hours. Not far from the quaint village of Berry and idyllic Kangaroo Valley, the walk to the Drawing Room, though uphill, is a real delight, taking you through lush bushland and along clifflines, with lovely sea breezes and vistas of verdant valleys and blue ocean accompanying you most of the way.
