The Blue Mountains is a world-class hiking destination. This remote wilderness, just a couple of hours from Sydney, has almost 200km of trails with views that will take your breath away.

You can hike for as long and as far as you want – there are endless possibilities. From short, family-friendly hikes to multi-day adventures with a high level of difficulty, there really is something for everyone.

One word of caution, though: some of the trails listed below are challenging, and require technical bush walking experience. What's more recent heavy rain and bush fires in the area have led to track closures, so always check the NPNSW website before heading out.


Lindeman Pass, Blue Mountains

Exposed, hard to follow, not for the faint-hearted, but for those who tackle Lindeman Pass, the adventure is worth it.
