The walk descends from Perry's Lookdown into the famous Blue Gum Forest. The overnight stay in the nearby Acacia Flats allows time for some exploring in the Grose River and the surrounding areas.

This walk tests out the knees and fitness and is great way to access the valley.

  1. Oh wow! I was 12-13 years old when I last went here … scary to think half a century ago… I wonder ?… has it changed?
    I guess many more people go there now compared to when I was a boy living out an adventure
