Twin Falls Circuit (Springbrook National Park)
2 Dec, 2018
Medium
4km
90 mins
Very hazy due to dust and smoke but a decent amount of water coming over the falls. Been a long time since my last walk and it was even nicer than I remember.
Purling Brook Falls Circuit (Springbrook National Park)

The falls were flowing nicely (I've seen them much lower). The main carpark is currently closed as they refurbish the picnic area so the walk starts from the camping area. This is well signposted from the road.
Best of All Lookout (Springbrook National Park)

Very Easy
700m

Very hazy day unfortunately so the view was limited.
Grand Canyon Track (Blue Mountains National Park)
14 Nov, 2018
Medium
6km return

Beautiful. Great contrast to the cliff top walks we'd been doing. Was worried the kids (6 & 8yo) would struggle with the elevation change but they handled it fine. We started with the descent at Evans Lookout and a more gradual climb back to the carpark.
Prince Henry Cliff Walk (Blue Mountains National Park)

Only a partial tick for this - we only covered the Scenic World to Echo Point section. Fantastic views and a brief stop at Katoomba Cascades
Lockleys Pylon (New South Wales)

Magnificent walk. It was great to get away from the crowds in Katoomba where I'd spent the morning. Lovely walking through the heath (would love to try it in Spring) and the views were amazing. My favourite walk I managed to fit in while in the Blue Mountains.

Our first Blue Mountains lookout. Breathtaking!
Whitegum Lookout (Warrumbungle National Park)

Short walk with a great overview of the park. Well worth the stop.
Belougery Split Rock (Warrumbungle National Park)

Hard
4.6km return

We had limited time in the park but this walk was fantastic. Quite hot so make sure to hit it early in the day. Our 6 and 8 year olds loved the scrambling to the summit.

I took a slow stroll along here in the late afternoon with kangaroos for companions and birds calling.
