Mt Victoria to Blackheath via Blue Gum Forest

Blue Mountains National Park

The longest of the Grose Valley bushwalks is from Mt Victoria to Blackheath via Blue Gum Forest, which follows the Grose River from Victoria Falls to the Blue Gum Forest and then Govetts Creek to Evans Lookout at Blackhheath. You could also ascend via Govett’s Leap, making the walk slightly shorter, or take the spectacular Grand Canyon track to finish at Neates Glen. It can be done as a 2-day walk, or three days if you camp at Burra Korain near Victoria Falls and then at Blue Gum Forest (Acacia Flat).
