OVERVIEW

The Blue Mountains region is the most accessible World Heritage-listed wilderness area in Australia. This walk incorporates two of the most impressive Blue Mountains walks. If you arrive early enough on day 1 you can fit in another walk which we include the notes for.

On this 3-day getaway, you'll descend the Giant Stairway and get close enough to touch the Three Sisters.

In Waterfall Valley, expect to see cascading falls with hanging swamps growing out of the cliffs. Follow the Mid Cliff Walk to the 2-tiered Wentworth Falls, then it's an invigorating trek to the top. The walk also traverses the national park between two delightful accommodations.

Want a little extra comfort? Upgraded accommodation is available in the Blue Mountains please contact us for more information. 

Please note: We offer our Blue Mountains walks all year round. November to March are the warmest months however they also tend to have the highest rainfall with January and February being the most affected. Track closures are common after periods of heavy rain. We will do our best to provide alternative walking options when possible. 

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Descents through lushly forested areas to vantage points with close up views of waterfalls
  • Creeping vines, green moss and giant trees
  • Potential to catch a glimpse of the elusive Lyrebird
  • Hike into the depths of stunning canyons where forest giants tower overhead with the sounds of flowing water, birdsong and wind in the trees
  • Witness the evocative blue haze that gives the mountains their name, as you hike through eucalyptus forest

GENERAL INFO

This walk starts and finishes in the Blue Mountains with a short two-hour train ride (not included in the trip cost) from Sydney to the first accommodation. The Blue Mountain walks are along well-marked tracks and trails, occasionally with steeper sections either ascending out of or descending into the gorges and valleys below. It’s a great combination of easy-going, moderate and more challenging walking terrain.

Importantly, we walk in and out of accommodations and move you along the track in order to limit the travel time in a vehicle. Your luggage moves along with you seamlessly as you walk from one accommodation to the next with just your day pack.

The comprehensive walk notes included provide lots of information on the flora, fauna, history and geology of the Blue Mountains.

For what to bring please refer to Gear Advice on our FAQ section.

HOW TO GET THERE AND AWAY

The 3-day highlights starts in Katoomba. All of the walks end in Leura with a transfer or short walk to the train station.

You will need to get yourself to and from the start and end of your walk. i.e. you will need to organise your travel to the start of the walk in the Blue Mountains. Taking the train is by far the best option.

Travelling to the Start of the walk

The 3-day highlights starts in Katoomba.

You will need to get yourself to and from the start and end of your walk. i.e. you will need to organise your travel to the start of the walk in the Blue Mountains. To make it easy we have collated some useful information that will assist you in making arrangements for your travel.

Public Transport: By far the easiest option is to catch a train from Sydney. For the 3 day trip your destination is Katoomba. It is approximately a 15 minute walk to your accommodation so you may prefer to catch a taxi (at your expense).

The train will take around 2hrs 10min from Sydney Central station and costs approximately AUD$8 to $12. You can buy tickets directly at the train station; there is no need to book. You can also catch the train at Sydney airport and swap at Central station. The trains in peak times depart approximately every 15 mins, out of peak every 30 mins to 40 mins. See the timetable for Blue Mountains trains.

Please note:  If you would prefer a private taxi transfer we can provide details for you to arrange. This will be an additional cost and may take longer.

Travelling from the End of the walk

Public Transport:  Take the train from either Katoomba or Leura; times and cost see the timetable online for the Blue Mountains trains.

    Myself and 5 other ladies took a self guided walk in the Blue Mountains in March 2019. The walks were truly amazing. Lots of options provided for every fitness level. We couldn’t fault the accommodation nor the food provided and the service from our hosts at both Lurline House (Katoomba) and Broomlea (Leura) was outstanding. We can highly recommend Stroll for their well researched walks, accommodation choices and fast, efficient and friendly service.

    I have just returned from my second trip with Stroll. The first was to the Blue Mountains in September and this time was Tassie in January.
    I can’t speak highly enough of the Stroll experience, from the team in the office, the guides on the trail and the seamless trips.
    The accommodation and food are top notch, the guides both expert and accommodating. with 2 guides on each trip, the offer to take an easier/harder option and to walk at your own pace is genuine, encouraged and supported.
    I know I’ll be back for a third trip and then some!

    I organised a walking trip for 10 school mums to the Blue Mountains with Stroll. Their staff where fantastic from the outset and really understood what we wanted. They booked all our accommodation, transfers and meals along the way and provided comprehensive track notes. All we had to do was turn up and follow the dot points. The selections along the way where all excellent with a great mix of having a casual pizza night followed by a serious restaurant meal. I would thoroughly recommend Stroll to anyone considering organising a walking holiday.

    As UK based hikers we’ve done a lot of self guided walking in Europe but we were a little anxious about what walking in Australia was like. We need not have worried – from the first email contact with Stroll we knew we were in safe hands. Stroll’s attention to detail is second to none. We did 2 hikes on this trip: the Blue Mountains and the Cape-to-Cape. All the transport and accommodation worked out very well – we were treated like royalty by the local suppliers! The walk notes and maps were excellent and we loved all the extra detail – we felt we’d learned a lot on these walks.
    So, don’t hesitate: book today! You’re sure to have a wonderful experience and enjoy the challenge.

    3 day self-guided walk from Blackheath to Leura. Amazing terrain, very warm & bit muggy…walks are not so easy as it is up/down constantly. So very rewarding.
    the BnB are spectacular…with very friendly hosts and wonderful accommodations.
    Maps are easy to follow. Highly reccommend.

    Our walking group of old friends, numbering between 9 and 13, have completed three (3) Self Guided walks with Stroll. Walks include, Rood of Australia, Blue Mountains and Mornington Peninsula. We have found on all walks that the scenery has been fantastic and very memorable. , Accommodation arranged, even for a group of our size, along meals provided have been of a very high standard with all proprietors being very helpful and eager to assist in any way. They all say how pleased they are working with Stroll and their efficiency. The walking notes, maps and documentation provided by Stroll have been very concise, up to date and easy to follow. Notes have also included history of the area and details of fauna and flora where significant. Stroll have always monitored our progress throughout our walks and provide easy contact if required. Their notes also include detailed information on transportation to and from starting/finishing points and good details for first aid etc. Overall we find Stroll very efficient, an excellent provider of itineraries and we will definitely be using their services for future walks. We recommend Stroll without hesitation. Paul
