The National Pass, Blue Mountains National Park

4.7
#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Blue Mountains
Built into a cliff side, The National Pass is a historic bushwalking trail that offers unparalleled views of the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park's many wonders. This popular hiking track was picked, shoveled, and blasted through with dynamite in the early 1900s. Start your journey at the picnic area, then stroll past epic lookouts as you soak in the sweeping views of the Valley of the Waters. Be prepared to tackle the historic Grand Stairway and remember to have your camera ready to capture the wildlife along the way. On your way up from the valley, stop at Conservation Hut for a warm cup of tea.
