|Start of Wentworth Pass, The Blue Mountains|
Day two in the Blueys took us to the staggering Wentworth Falls, which was saddled with one of the most terrifyingly high walks that had been carved into the nooks and crannies of immense cliff edges. We took the Wentworth Pass cliff walk which was labelled as “hard” and 5.6km long (more details here). There were 200m sheer cliff faces everywhere you looked, which dropped down to a beautiful blue hazy forest below. This walk was certainly not for the faint hearted, people with fear of heights or vertigo sufferers. I don’t think the photos give it justice to how high we really were and how huge the drop was off the cliff tops.

We eventually got down to the actual Wentworth Falls. How stunning is that.
This was another waterfall at the other end of Wentworth Falls where you clamber up beside it. So beautiful.
After lunch we hopped back in the car and drove to Pulpit Rock Lookout, highly recommended by some good buddies of ours. Now if you are have any fear of heights what so ever, this is not one for you. An absolutely staggering piece of rock formation which juts out into the Grose Valley. It really was spine-tingling to be there.
We were greeted by this view at the top before we walked down further…
Its a fabulous place to take a picnic
We continued on down the stairs
You get an astonishing 360 degree panorama view of the Grose Valley with 200m cliff drops either side.
These beautiful mountains are literally a stones throw from Sydney. I will certainly be back as there is so many more places to explore. I would very much recommend going to see them for yourselves. It was a wonderful weekend were I felt very lucky to be a part of a such a fabulously beautiful country.
