The Grose Valley is an absolute gem in the heart of the Blue Mountains, a must-visit for any nature lover or hiker. With a variety of walking tracks, it provides ample opportunities to explore the valley's natural beauty. The Grand Canyon Track is a 6-kilometer journey through lush rainforest and past several waterfalls, including the stunning Bridal Veil Falls, while the challenging 12-kilometer Rodriguez Pass trail takes you up to the cliff top for some incredible views, with Evans Lookout being a great spot for panoramic views of the valley.
Besides the walks, the Grose Valley also boasts several waterfalls, with Govetts Leap being one of the most popular. Pulpit Rock Lookout is another popular spot for breathtaking views of the valley and its escarpment.
My family and I had the pleasure of completing the Evans Lookout to Victoria Falls walk, a two-day hike through the Grose Valley that offers stunning views of the valley and several waterfalls along the way. Starting at Evans Lookout, the walk takes you through lush rainforest, rocky trails, and scenic lookouts. It follows the Grose River until it meets Victoria Creek, where the trail ends at the beautiful Victoria Falls.
For hikers looking to spend more time in the valley, there are several camping areas, including Acacia Flat, Blue Gum Forest, and Burramoko Ridge. These camping areas provide a great base for hikers to explore the valley and nearby trails, with Acacia Flat being a popular camping spot for hikers doing the Evans Lookout to Victoria Falls walk.
