Description

Hard to believe that TJF was popular before Nowra or Mt Keira was even discovered. The climbing is mostly vertical sports climbing varying from 15 to 40+ meters high. Rock quality is 1st class Shoalhaven water carved sandstone, very similar to Thompsons Point.

BOLTING IS BANNED to the left of the lookout and 100m right of the lookout as this is National Park land. Please avoid climbing on the cliff directly under the lookout, not only will you probably get a rock or beer bottle thrown at you from the tourists, you'll also attract unwanted attention from the authorities!

Location: Tianjara Falls - just a bit past Nowra. Turn off Princess Highway as per access to Thommo Point (Kalander St), follow this and turn left into Albatros Road, follow this to HMAS Albatros. Then turn right into Braidwood Rd, continue along this road (it turns into Turpentine Rd) follow the directions to Nerriga. Keep your eye out for the sign for Tianjara Falls, its about 1km on your right after the road turns into dirt. Park in the massive obvious carpark. Walk down towards the lookout and follow the trail (right) on top of the cliff towards the crags. The 1st walk down gully is about 2 min walk...

The The RTA has recently spent $80 million upgrading the highway from Nowra to Tianjara Falls for the benefit of the sports climbing community!,

The The RTA has recently spent $80 million upgrading the highway from 'Nowra' to 'Tianjara Falls' for the benefit of the sports climbing community!, and is now a nifty 9 minutes from 'Nowra' @ 180kph in your turbo charged Subaru. There has been a noticeable police presence on this route since 2011.
