Overview

Approximately one and half hours from Sydney, the Blue Mountains region is the most accessible World Heritage-listed wilderness area in Australia. This walk incorporates two of the most impressive Blue Mountains walks, which have always been popular since their construction in the early 1900s.

On this 3-day getaway, you’ll descend the Giant Stairway and get close enough to touch the Three Sisters. There are descents through lushly forested areas to vantage points with close up views of waterfalls. Creeping vines, green moss and giant trees will be your constant companion, while hoping to catch a glimpse of the elusive Lyrebird.

In Waterfall Valley, expect to see cascading falls with hanging swamps growing out of the cliffs. Hike into the depths of stunning canyons where forest giants tower overhead with the sounds of flowing water, bird song and wind in the trees. Learn about the evocative blue haze that gives the mountains their name, as you hike through eucalyptus forest. Follow the Mid Cliff Walk to the 2-tiered Wentworth Falls, then an invigorating trek to the top. The walk also traverses the national park between two delightful accommodations.

Note that this trip is also available as a 5 or 7-day itinerary and as both a privately guided or self-guided holiday. For further information on this trip watch this walk being featured on an episode of the Sydney Weekender in 2017.
