Murphys fire trail, from Woodford to Murphys Glen campground, offers a unique driving tour through unspoilt heathlands. Situated in Blue Mountains National Park, only a short drive from local townships, it’s a great track for driving, walking and mountain biking.

Following a narrow ridge top with scenic views across Cumberland Plains, you might be sharing the track with swamp wallabies and goannas. As the trail descends into the campground, the heath gives way to majestic forests. Whether camping or picnicking, be sure to admire the towering stand of gums that fringe the nearby the creek.

Spring is a great time to visit as the seemingly harsh landscape and sandstone rock platforms erupt with an extravagant wildflower display. Hardy mallee ash, banksia and trigger plants, growing in the sandstone rock clefts, dazzle with vibrant blooms.
