For an experience that gets you deep into the heart of unspoilt bushland in southern Blue Mountains National Park head for Wentworth Falls to Murphys Glen via Ingar campground. An unsealed road popular with walkers and cyclists and only a couple of hours from Sydney; it’s the perfect quick nature getaway.

From Kings Tableland the sweeping views of undulating bushland are inspiring. The houses are replaced with bushland and the trail winds forests, heath and unique rock formations. At Ingar campground enjoy a swim in one of the magical waterholes and unpack a picnic. With so much to explore, you might be tempted to pitch a tent and stay a while.

Relatively flat, it’s a good ride for beginner mountain bikers. More experienced cyclists who are ready to take on the challenge of the Bedford Creek gorge can check out Murphys trail - Wentworth Falls to Woodford cycling route.
