Charles Darwin National Pass and Nature Track walk is a 8.6km, grade 4 Circuit hike located in Blue Mountains National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 5 hrs to complete.


This is a wonderful circuit walk that starting at Wentworth Falls Train Station. You kick off with a lovely stroll down Charles Darwin walk to Weeping Rock where you soon come to Queen’s Cascades and the wonderful views in to the valley. Now we walk partway down the cliff on the Grand Stairway to follow the Historic National Pass exploring more amazing views and then some wonderful waterfalls on the way out of the Valley Of the Waters. Before following the Nature Track back towards the station there is a optional side trip to Conservation Hut if you want a lovely cafe lunch. This walk has a lot of steps so you do need to be fairly fit to enjoy it.
