Glenbrook Gorge track is a 3km, grade 4 return hike, located in the Blue Mountains National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.

Hike Summary

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.
Tracing the base of the gorge, there’s the chance to get off-track as you wade 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. You can choose to climb out to Lapstone Station, or if you’ve got more time and energy to spare, retrace your steps up the gorge and enjoy a refreshing dip in Jellybean Pool on the way back. Remember to take your binoculars if you want to bird watch.
