Easy track

This walk leads from the information center at Echo Point down through the Blue Mountains National Park to Oreades Lookout. It is a popular walk and follows a smooth concreted path the whole way. There are no steps but sections do get steep in places. The short side trip to Spooners lookout is well worth the extra effort. A lovely walk suitable for the whole family.

772 m

Hard track

Starting from Megalong Rd, this walk will take you past the historic Megalong Cemetery and then through some farmland as you wander along private dirt roads on part of the Six Foot Track. Just shy of 1km into the walk, you will then follow a track as it crosses the Guyvey Bridge and meanders through the pleasant open farmland with views of the distant escarpment. In time, the walk leaves the farms and explores the more dense forest and granite boulders before coming to the granite carved Coxs River. There is a chance to explore the river up close or take a bird’s-eye view from the swing bridge. The tracknotes also describe a side trip to the Six Foot Track lodge, great if you want to stay and explore the area for longer.

3 Days

29.3 km One way


2147 m

Experienced only

Circling the Jamison Valley, this spectacular three day walk is packed with great views and beautiful scenery. From Scenic World the walk heads around the base of the cliffs before climbing up to the Ruined Castle and then Mt Solitary. Walkers can rest in the sheltered Chinaman’s Gully campsite overnight (don’t expect water). Day two takes a rough track across Solitary and down to the Kedumba River. On the third day, the walk climbs to King’s Tableland and the beautiful and amazing Wentworth Falls.* This walk passes through very remote areas and sections have no visible track. At least one person in your group should have training and experience in off track walking and navigation. Even with these notes and a GPS these extra skills and equipment are required.
