OVERVIEW

The Blue Mountains region is the most accessible World Heritage-listed wilderness area in Australia.  The walk traverses the plateau and the valley floor from Mt Victoria via Blackheath and Leura to Wentworth Falls. 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.

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.

  • Luggage ahead each day to the next accommodation so you can spend more time relaxing
  • Only one and a half hours from Sydney by train or vehicle,

    Our self-guided 7-day Blue Mountains Traverse was the very best way to experience the Blue Mountains. We got to walk in some of the most beautiful places (hint: don’t skip the Grand Canyon!!!). Not having to worry about our next meal or whether we’d have a comfy bed & hot shower for the night was truly awesome! Each of our accommodation host were just so welcoming and a wealth of local knowledge. Without having to worry about the logistics of the trip, we were able to completely revel in the beauty of the area and connect with so many lovely people along the way. Thanks a million to Auswalk for the absolutely seamless organisation of a truly memorable holiday.

    The Blue Mountains are beautiful, seeing them on an Auswalk self-guided tour made the experience even better. We couldn’t fault Auswalk, they provided us with everything we needed. The B & B’s they organised were perfect with wonderful hosts and the food was delicious! The walks were fantastic, each showing us a different part of the Blue Mountains.
