Perry’s Lookdown to Blackheath Station is a 12.8km, grade 4 One way hike located in Blue Mountains National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 2 days to complete.


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. After some steady climbing the walk passes the base of the magnificent Bridal Falls and climbs steeply to Govetts Leap Lookout. This walk tests out the knees and fitness and is great way to access the valley.
