Wanted to walk our favourite Blue Mountains track last weekend, but it is closed for maintenance and repair after a rockfall. Instead we walked Grand Canyon track near Medlow Bath, a good alternative. It descends from Evans Lookout to the valley floor, makes a loop...More

The national pass bush walk is one of the best experiences in bush waking. About 3 hours of bush walk with chit chat and natural mountain beauty. Easy to follow paths and safe waking tracks.
