Blackheath’s Grand Canyon is an iconic walking track in the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains. On this 4.5hr bushwalk we’ll descend deep into the phenomenal ‘slot formation’ canyon.  You'll be surrounded by sheer cliffs, lush ferns and ancient rainforest. Every metre we descend represents roughly 1 million years in geological time. You’ll explore waterfalls and creeks at a relaxed pace and see how water has carved out a subterranean stream over time. Discover the history of this heritage track, and learn about local Australian wildlife that reside here. Immerse yourself in the changing and spectacular landscapes along the way.

This special walk requires a reasonable degree of fitness. Wear sturdy enclosed shoes and practical walking clothes. Remember to bring a camera and pack extra water and a hat.
