Photo classes on the move
Walk alongside creeks as they begin their tinkling journey to the sea. Stand on sandy beaches and take photographs as you cross below the waterfalls. Perfect in summer with its cooler temperatures, so you can take your time as a photographer or simply admire the rainforest as a bush walker. This is a 3.5 km / 2.1 miles walk on approved tracks .
You may see Waratah, Mountain Devil , Banksia and Drumstick flowers just a few of our many hardy mountain species. Listen for the Black Cockatoo's and look for the Crimson Rozella's and the amazingly beautiful red King Parrots as they fly through the trees.
Blue Mountains National Parks
The Blue Mountains was an ancient eroded mountain range long before the Himalayas and Rocky Mountains started to appear as the Gondwana Continental Plates moved.
Greater Blue Mountains is now a World Heritage listed area. It covers one million
hectares of ancient and spectacular national park and wilderness.
Dominated by the Eucalypt forest which grows in temperate climates,
it is the same area where the Wollemi Pine was recently discovered by
a park ranger as he abseiled into a gorge. The Wollemi Pine was growing
65 million years ago when Tyrannosaurus Rex roamed the earth.
one million years ago when rocks were raised above the coastal plains
to form a plateau with layers of shale*.
