The internationally acclaimed Blue Mountains, with it's escarpments and breathtaking scenery, offer some spectacular bush walks of varying lengths.

Depending on which walk you take, there are cascading waterfalls, magnificent panoramas, rainforests and fern-filled gullies, the gorgeous smell of eucalypts, glimpses of wildlife and wonderful flora unique to the area.

Whilst many are sign posted, make sure you let others know where you are going and how long you anticipate being. As weather conditions can change quite dramatically, make sure you take appropriate clothing and water. You can visit the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service - Blue Mountains Walking Tracks for more information.

The Blue Mountains National Park includes more than 240,000 hectares of dissected sandstone plateau, forested river valleys and deep gorges. The Park adjoins Wollemi National Park to the north and Kanangra Boyd National Park to the south west, making it one of the largest natural areas in NSW.
