We took a drive through the neighbouring village of Tallong, out to Badgerys Lookout. It too is on the edge of the escarpment, but I’d never seen such expansive valleys before in the Southern Highlands. The river below eventually joins up with the Kangaroo River, which eventually flows into the Shoalhaven.
The bush looked much barer and drier at this end of the Shoalhaven Catchment. It also looked as if landslides were a frequent occurence.
