The Blue Mountains have remained a favourite destination for those that are either visiting New South Wales or make their homes in this spectacular part of Australia – and in particular, Sydney.
This is in part due to the magnificent natural scenery, including waterfalls, gorges and rainforest trails.
However, it is also because the Blue Mountains are the perfect distance (just over an hour from the city limits) from the metropolis of Sydney.
This makes them the perfect day trip destination.
If you are in or near Sydney, you really should immerse yourself in a bushwalking experience among the peaks and valleys of the Blue Mountains.
There are some great choices of trails to whet your appetite when it comes to the wonders of this destination.
Let’s take a look at three of the best trails for your next Blue Mountains bushwalk.
The Grand Canyon Walk is one of the most popular bushwalking trails in the Blue Mountains.
Those who choose to take to the trails here will be rewarded by the tranquillity and natural beauty of the rainforest ecosystem which is so much a part of the Blue Mountain experience.
During any hike the abundance of streams, towering cliffs boasting a palette of colours that are illuminated by the shining sun and waterfalls that cascade over spectacular rock formations will make for an unforgettable experience.
The hiking track (which at 6km long should take around two and a half hours to complete) – was first opened to the public in 1907.
Since then, it has remained a firm favourite with those who want to experience New South Wales at its most visually stunning.
Although not as popular as the Grand Canyon walk the Katoomba experience is well worth the effort made to explore.
The walk itself is an easy 4km circuit – especially if you only take in the sight of one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the area.
The views across the Jamison Valley from the rainforest canopy provide an air of tranquillity that visitors from the big city are bound to appreciate.
This trail was carved from the earth at the turn of the 20th century using hours of manpower.
The result can only be described as spectacular. It is one of the most popular bushwalks in the region – and for very good reason.
The moderately difficult 3 hour, 4.5km circuit offers views that take in the Jamison Valley and spectacular cliffside views of Wentworth Falls.
The ‘Grand Stairway’ which consists of hand-carved steps leading down into the Valley is without a doubt the highlight of this wonderful walking trail.
Taking some time off to experience the joys of a Blue Mountain bushwalk is something that every visitor to the region should experience.
It provides memories that will last a lifetime and should be on the bucket list for anyone who appreciates nature.
