When it’s time to pack up the car and get out of town, the Jellybean track offers a great day trip for you and the kids. Starting at the Glenbrook entrance to the Blue Mountains National Park, the walk follows an easy track down the hill to Jellybean pool. It’s a great spot to cool off on hot days.

This walk takes you into the Glenbrook Gorge, passing mountain spotted gums and grass trees. Keep your eye out for kestrels and other birds of prey as they glide through the air looking for food. Watch for brilliantly coloured rainbow lorikeets or the cheeky gang gang with its distinctive call, like a rusty hinge.

Stairs lead down to the pretty Jellybean pool, flanked by sandstone cliffs. If you’ve worked up a sweat you won’t be able to resist a dip and the kids will love swimming and liloing in these calm waters. Roll out the picnic blanket on one of the sandy beaches or lie back in the shade of the gums and doze off to the sounds of the bush. Remember to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch.
