Approximately one and a half hours from Sydney, the Blue Mountains region is the most accessible World Heritage-listed wilderness area in Australia. This self-guided walk traverses the plateau starting out in Mt Victoria and finishing in Leura and includes all the best of the Blue Mountains walks. As you wind your way through the mountains you’ll be astonished by the abundance of magnificent vistas with highlights, including Bridal Veil Falls, Govett’s Leap Lookout, the Jamison Valley via the Scenic Railway and the Waterfall Valley near Leura.
Take in panoramic views that stretch out to the horizon, get up close to the Three Sisters and witness breathtaking views of the famed Blue Mountains blanketed in the distinctive blue haze for which they were named. 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, and there is a high chance of seeing the elusive Lyrebird. With one million hectares of bushland, this pristine wilderness has 100s of kilometres of trails and we’ve chosen the very best of them.
