You will briefly visit the tourist stops at the Blue Mountains, and have the opportunity to ride the “Scenic Railway” and “Skyway”.

You will find massive blue gum trees, tree ferns, staghorn and orchids and also visit ANCIENT ABORIGINAL SITES. The walk is great – it’s a little bit of a workout – but really worth it!!
