Outdoor Activities in the Blue Mountains
By Viator, November 2013
Walk and Wander
Visitors can enjoy a laundry list of treks and trails that pass through rainforests and rocky crags. The Jellybean Pool ends at a well-known water hole where most walkers pause for a refreshing dip. The more adventurous can embark on a three-day journey on Six Foot Track—45-kilometers of rugged terrain.
Ride the Range
Skip Katoomba’s Scenic Railway. Instead, travel the Coachwood Glen Nature Trail on horseback. This is the only way to see the Megalong Valley. The trail winds through rainforest, dells and mountain ash, making it an easy, but scenic journey.
Check Out Jenolan Caves
Pass through Katoomba and stop for a view of Three Sisters from Echo Point before visiting Jenolan Caves. Estimated to be 340 million years old, Jenolan Caves may be the oldest on earth. Take a guided tour through the 10 sub-caves. Enjoy an underground concert at the Cathedral Cave, where perfect acoustics make any song sound just right.
With so many mountain cliffs, waterfalls and steep terrain, the Blue Mountains are an ideal destination for extreme-sports enthusiasts. Canoe along one of the park’s natural rivers or abseil from atop any of the Blue Mountain’s scenic cliffs. Hire a 4-WD vehicle to explore areas no tour bus can travel or spend a day mountain biking on Narrow Neck plateau and the Hanging Rock.
