The National Pass deserves all the high praise! My half crcuit with additions ranks up with favorite hikes in Montserrat and the eastern US. It is quitw achievable for the reasonably fit who can do stairs, uneven paths, and don't mind a dropoff with railways alongside. I did it with one hand in a splint mid fifties. In addition to...

Amazing trail to do in the blue mountains, so many different landscapes to encounter and nice explanatory information signs along the way about the history of how the national pass was setup. Amazing steep cliff stairs and walking alongside the waterfall are the standouts of the walk, it's a challenge is some areas and quite long but totally worth it!... More

Definitely a must do walk in the Blue Mountains. Not easy but worth the effort! The story of the brave and fearless men who built the track is told on plaques along the way making for an interesting and inspiring adventure.

We did this walk after reading all the great reviews. We certainly were not disappointed. The scenery is truly awesome. The experience diverse, challenging and breathtaking. We took 2 and half hours to walk from Wentworth Falls to the Conservation Hut cafe (short 20minute walk back to Wentworth Falls car park from there). We were glad we did it this... More

Did these two look outs and it was great. Not the whole walk, but these two were quick and easy to get to. Some steps but not too bad. Would suggest for a quicker adventure.

We walked the National Pass on a warm Spring day with a nearly 4 year old and 18 month old (in a carrier). There are a fair few steep stairs whichever way you do it so I wouldn't recommend it on a really hot day or if you don't have a basic level of fitness. Having said that there there... More

This walk is the perfect way to escape all of the crowd. There are parts of it where it's busy but the main tracks along the mountains are very quiet. The views are absolutely stunning and we constantly reminded ourselves how easy it was to access this scenery given that we spent 4 years in New Zealand where you had... More

If you start at Wentworth Falls you will have the most spectacular climb down across a rock face in Safety that you could ever imagine the first time you see it it will amaze you and then you realise people have been doing this for more than a century well before it is accommodated with the safety rails it now...

One of the best, but also one of the most popular, walks in the Blue Mountains (for a reason!). I started and ended at the Conservation Hut and took an anti-clockwise route. I suggest an anti-clockwise route as I personally prefer walking up rather than down the giant staircase (gotta look after the knees!). Parts of the walk is slippery... More
