Some Bushwalking Notes mostly from NSW

Blue Mountains National Park is one of New South Wales' best known parks, and at over 247,000 ha is also one of the biggest. It is just 50km to the west of Sydney, and is part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area which protects over a million hectares of land. It offers much to both the keen bushwalker and the casual tourist. The edge of the park is relatively developed in areas with information centres, constructed walking tracks and picnic areas. Yet in the interior there is a huge amount of rugged, relatively unexplored country with spectacular gorges and canyons, soaring cliffs and forested ridges.

The trips described in this blog explore that spectacular and rugged country. They not well documented or well visited. They are mostly off track. Most require more than just bushwalking skills. Most have a combination of serious route finding challenges, a degree of exposure, requirement for scrambing or climbing skills, strong judgement of abilities with prior experience of similar trips, suitable gear.
