Summary

This easy track meanders behind the dramatic cliffs of Grose Valley near Blackheath, in World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park. Fairfax Heritage walking track is ideal for family groups who want to experience the diverse range of vegetation and spectacular views on offer.
The graded wheelchair-accessible path winds over gentle slopes, skirting the edge of a unique hanging swamp. The path opens up to forests of peppermint and scribbly gums dotted with grass trees. In early summer, you may see the vibrant red flowers of waratahs, as well as many other colourful wildflowers. Nearing the cliffs at George Phillips and Govetts Leap lookout, enjoy expansive valley views taking in Govetts Gorge and Jungle Falls. Remember to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch.
Drop into Blue Mountains Heritage Centre for information, maps, books and souvenirs of your Blue Mountains escape.
