The Blue Mountains National Park is one of the most popular national parks in Australia. Visit the Blue Mountains National Park from one of the many lookouts between Wentworth Falls and Blackheath. Activities for the visitor include short walks to lookouts above cliffs and waterfalls, overnight and longer walks to more remote areas of the park, canyoning, abseiling, rock climbing and mountain biking. A number of adventure tour companies can assist visitors in safely experiencing these activities. It is also home to the world’s steepest railway, the Katoomba Scenic Railway.
The national park is renowned for the Three Sisters rock formation.
Both north and south of Blackheath, the cliffs are the most spectacular as the rock faces are several hundreds metres tall.
Several lookout points provide vantage points over the Grose Valley. Bushwalking, abseiling and canyoning are popular activities in this area. The visitors centre is located in Govetts Leap road, Blackheath. Email: National Parks and Wildlife Service or Ph (+61) 02 4787 8877.
