  • The track ends at Glenbrook creek and doesn't continue along the creek line.

This dynamic track is for the adventurous at heart, and will have you rock-hopping down the beautiful Glenbrook Gorge in no time. Located in the eastern reaches of Blue Mountains National Park, Glenbrook Gorge track is short yet challenging, and bound to get that heart pumping.

Follow the track down from the carpark to Glenbrook Creek. Then tracing the base of the gorge, explore some of the hidden gems as you traverse your way down the creek. Look out for the historic railway tunnel built in 1911. The rubble from its construction can still be seen on the sandbar where Glenbrook Creek meets Nepean River, near the end of the track.

Take a well-deserved breather and enjoy the tranquillity of the surrounding bush at the end of the track before retracing your steps up the gorge to return to the start.  If you have time, a short walk down nearby Jellybean track leads to Jellybean Pool for a refreshing dip. Remember to take your binoculars if you want to bird watch.
