This walk starts at the very small village of Mt Wilson located off Bells Line of Road in the Upper Blue Mountains. It enters the rather ancient landscape of Wollemi National Park, dropping down to the Wollangambe River, where you can do some canyoning (if that’s your thing). You return the same way, climbing back out of the valley.

We used track notes in A Day in the Bush, and there are also notes on the Bushwalking NSW website

My photography was so so back in 2015, but I might do this walk again soon (2019), so perhaps I can add to or replace some of these pics. I’ve at least been inspired to do this walk (again) by some of my own (mediocre) photos, and that’s the point of my blog after all!

Lots of flannel flowers. You will see these on some coastal walks as well.

Past their prime, but a nice stand of waratahs nevertheless, (the NSW state flower).

For some reason I didn’t take a picture of the river, but it’s nice too. We then began the climb out…

A particularly nice patch of forest. People commenting on social media thought it looked rather Jurassic.
