Blue Mountains Small-Group Day Hike
Explore the beautiful Blue Mountains on a small-group day hike departing from Wentworth Falls. Follow remote bush tracks through lush rainforest and enjoy stunning views of the Blue Mountains’ eucalyptus-fringed valleys. Choose from two different hikes to suit your level of fitness: the medium-grade Valley of the Waterfalls hike, or the more challenging Ruined Castle. All walks are led by an experienced hiking guide and include lunch.
Valley of the Waterfalls
Discover a true hidden gem, filled with stunning cascading waterfalls, spectacular scenery and rocky escarpments.
Grade: Medium hike with some steep steps up and down, suitable for those with an average level of fitness. This is a 4- to 6-mile (7-to 10-kilometer), approximately 3.5-hour hike.
Ruined Castle and Scenic Railway

For amazing 360-degree views of the area, hike across the Jamison Valley and climb the Ruined Castle, a large outcrop of rocky boulders that jut out above the surrounding bush.
