Blue Mountains Secret Places Adventure

This will be a full day of exploring destinations not usually seen or experienced by the average visitor to the World Heritage-listed upper Blue Mountains, west of Sydney.

Yes, you could visit all the usual standard and well worn Blue Mountains crowded tourist destinations but isn’t it more fun to “step off the trail” and explore those little known places that only us locals know about?

I'd like you to join me to explore the unknown, to see places that few have seen, to take home memories and tell of experiences that your friends will envy.

We will experience awesome vistas, explore amazing caves, walk through cool rain forests, and dine on yummy local food and drink.

The goal for the day is to avoid all the usual crowded tourist hot spots and visit some really outstanding secret places.

Our day starts at Katoomba and we'll travel as far as Little Hartley, with stops in Medlow Bath, Blackheath, Megalong Valley, Shipley, and Mount Victoria.

      Stop At: Katoomba, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, New South Wales

      Hike to a secluded and virtually unknown spot that has dramatic views into the Megalong Valley

      Duration: 45 minutes

      Stop At: Medlow Bath, Medlow Bath, Blue Mountains, New South Wales

      Our next destination, we'll take a very short stop to grab a coffee/drink to-go and take a sneak peek at some interesting mountains memorabilia

      Duration: 20 minutes

      Stop At: Blackheath, Blackheath, Blue Mountains, New South Wales

      We'll now make our way further north to a seriously amazing secret cave grotto and - if it's been raining recently - a beautiful waterfall that you can even walk behind too! In fact this waterfall can get quite thunderous and raging - so cross fingers for some earlier rain before your day trip.

      Duration: 45 minutes

      Stop At: Megalong Valley, Megalong Valley, Blue Mountains, New South Wales

      Next we're off for another walk through a truly wondrous, cool, and ancient rain forest where it's easy to image a dinosaur hiding around the next fern. There is also a lovely gentle creek running through this rain forest, so this and the filtered light makes for some stunning photo opportunities - just remember to bring your jumper or coat as it can get a bit cool in the rain forest at times.

      Duration: 50 minutes

      Stop At: Megalong Valley, Megalong Valley, Blue Mountains, New South Wales

      Now it's time for lunch, so we'll grab a scrumptious meal at a local cafe that has been operating for over 60 years. Whilst enjoying our yummy meal we'll take in the views of the iconic escarpments and the local bush land of the upper Blue Mountains.

      Duration: 1 hour

      Stop At: Shipley Road, Shipley Rd, Blackheath NSW 2785, Australia

      Our next stop is a short trip along the Shipley Plateau to where you'll have an almost 360˚ panoramic view across the dramatic cliff lines of the Blue Mountains escarpment and through to grazing, agricultural, and bush areas of the Megalong Valley, and the distant mountains and valleys beyond.

      Duration: 15 minutes

      Stop At: Blackheath, Blackheath, Blue Mountains, New South Wales

      Returning along the plateau we then take walk along the heath and scrub of Blackheath and then down below the cliffline, which again gives amazing views. If it's a good weather day there's likely to be climbers scaling the cliffs above us.

      Duration: 1 hour

      Stop At: Little Hartley, Little Hartley, Blue Mountains, New South Wales

      We'll continue our day tour down through Victoria Pass to beautiful Little Hartley for an afternoon snack and drink at the sweetest little shop in the Blue Mountains

      Duration: 25 minutes

      Stop At: Mount Victoria, Mount Victoria, New South Wales

      Once we're fully refreshed it's back to the top of Victoria Pass and then a short walk to our last stop of the day to take in the afternoon sun and to watch the ever-changing views across the upper Blue Mountains as the sun goes down. Make sure you have a warm jumper or jacket for this bit - it can get very cold once the sun goes down.

      Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
