Today is a day free for you to enjoy one of the many attractions around the Blue Mountains National Park.
Wentworth Falls picnic area is a great base to explore the lush world of rainforests and waterfalls along a range of spectacular walking tracks to suit all the family. The leisurely Charles Darwin walk to the Overcliff-Undercliff track is an ideal area for bird watching and enjoying the Blue Mountains National Park. You can also enjoy many mountain bike trails.
Maybe you prefer to visit the Mount Tomah Botanic Gardens (Don’t miss The Potager Cafe at the Botanic Gardens)
We highly recommend the Potager Pot pies of slow-braised beef rib in a rich red wine jus, the crispy truffle oil baked chat potatoes that come alongside were pretty heavenly too, a very welcome change to the ubiquitous fries. If you’re heading out to the botanic gardens or elsewhere in Mount Tomah, this is a great option for lunch.
Maybe relax and make a picnic at Leura Cascades. This is a popular picnic area set amidst tall eucalypts. Nearby you can take a walk beside the rapids on Leura Falls Creek down to Bridal Veil Falls and Leura Falls.
Be prepared and plan your walks as several walks can be accessed from here and can either take you along the cliff tops to Echo Point or down through the Leura Forest and via the Federal or Dardanelles Passes to Katoomba. Leura Cascades is the start, or end, of the Prince Henry Cliff Walk. The picnic area is approximately 2.2 kilometres from Leura Railway Station.
