Escape the urban buzz of Sydney and enter a world of misty forests, wild valleys and ethereal falls on a 4-day walking adventure through the Blue Mountains. Named for the eucalyptus haze that clings to its features, there’s no better way to explore this diverse ecosystem than on foot, and with an expert leader by your side, you’ll leave with all the local secrets and inside knowledge of the landscapes you walk through. Marvel at the Three Sisters rock formation, stand in awe of nature at the Sublime Point Lookout and learn about First Nations culture on a walk with a First Nations guide. When adventure calls, the Blue Mountains are the answer.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Discover the diverse landscapes of the Blue Mountains on foot, walking past iconic sights like the Three Sisters, Wentworth Falls, Jamison Valley, Echo Point and Katoomba Falls.
  • Learn about the history of this land and its traditional owners during a morning walk with a First Nations guide and hear stories of one of the world’s oldest living cultures.
  • Embark on a spectacular Night-lit Walk through Katoomba Falls Reserve and experience the beauty of the falls lit up at night.
  • Visit Everglades House and Gardens and wander through the European-inspired 1930’s homestead that has gained the attention of garden-lovers world-wide.

Is this trip right for you?
  • This trip involves varied walks, with the majority including very steep descents and ascents and extensive stairs. You will need to have excellent mobility and no history of knee injuries to enjoy these walks. Good footwear and clothing for all types of weather are essential. Some travellers find walking poles difficult to use in this area due to the many steps. 
  • As this is a walking trip that is dependent on weather and track conditions and therefore it is very hard to set an exact itinerary that will stay the same throughout the year. Due to weather, recent landslides and ongoing capital works, the tracks that are open and closed can change frequently and without warning. This means that the best laid plans may need to change, and leaders will be flexible and plan alternative walks.

Important notes

START & END TIME
Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 8.30am on Day 1 in Sydney, and you are expected to arrive back into Sydney around 6.30pm on the last day. Please note that there is no accommodation included on the last day in Sydney.

SINGLE SUPPLEMENT
A single supplement is available if you’d prefer not to share a room on this trip. Please speak to your booking agent for further information.

TEMPORARY TRACK CLOSURES
Please note that ongoing track closures following sustained wet weather and subsequent geological instability as well as improvement works planned within the Park may put us in a position where we will be forced to change some of the walks with short notice. Blue Mountains National Park covers a huge area with many options for great walks to choose, therefore we are confident any last-minute changes, should they occur, will provide equally fantastic hiking experiences.

Great trip, great company. As an elderly male, Guide Will made certain I was well cared for if some of the walks were too strenuous.

Unblemished sunshine mixed with ethereal mist; the weather conditions teasing the views of valleys and cliff faces within the Blue Mountains. Three walkers and one leader braved the elements, every step up or down through bush washed clean and coloured with bottlebrush candles. For three ladies of 'senior' ages, the pace was respectful, geared to slow breathing and willing calf muscles. Time belonged to four people, unhurried and without pressure. A satisfied way in which to enjoy this iconic scenery.
