(0 km) Victoria Falls Rd car park to Victoria Falls Lookout
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 103 m Time = 2 mins
Climb = 0 m Descent = -15 m
From the car park, this walk follows the sign to 'Grose Valley Lookout' down the hill. The walk then winds down some steps for approximately 50m to a lookout.

Victoria Falls Lookout Alt = 905 m
Victoria Falls Lookout, Blue Mountains NP, has an easterly aspect over the Grose Valley. Although the lookout is named after the wonderful Victoria Falls, there are no views of the falls from this lookout.

(0.1 km) Victoria Falls Lookout to Int. Victoria Creek Cascades and Victoria Falls Tracks
Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 1.27 km Time = 39 mins
Climb = 24 m Descent = -358 m
Continue straight: From the lookout, this walk heads past the 'Victoria Falls' sign, down the hill. It leads across the hill for a short while before turning right and following the steps downhill for approximately 100m. The track then tends left, steeply down through a rocky outcrop, then continues winding across the hill under rocky outcrops (on the right). The track winds left, down through the rock again, to steeply zigzag down the hill for some time, moving away from the rocky outcrop, into ferns and more grassy undergrowth. The track heads steeply down towards the sound of the cascades at the signposted intersection.

(1.38 km) Int. Victoria Creek Cascades and Victoria Falls Tracks to Victoria Creek Cascades
Optional sidetrip: Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 94 m Time = 3 mins
Climb = 14 m Descent = 0 m
Veer right: From the intersection, this walk follows the sign to 'Cascades', heading towards the noise of the falling water. It follows the hillside through the rainforest vegetation to the creek bank. The track then continues over the slippery rocks to the bottom of the falls.
(Retrace your steps back to the main track, then veer right to continue along this walk.)

Victoria Cascades Alt = 626 m
Victoria Cascades, Blue Mountains NP, is a shorter run of water than the larger Victoria Falls. These cascades rush over a slope of rock to continue down to Victoria Falls. The cascades, made by Victoria Creek, are worth a look on your way down to Victoria Falls. However, on a a trip up from Victoria Falls, these smaller cascades may be somewhat overshadowed by the larger falls.

(1.38 km) Int. Victoria Creek Cascades and Victoria Falls Tracks to Int. Top of Falls and Victoria Creek Tracks
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 15 m Time =
Climb = 0 m Descent = -2 m
Turn left: From the intersection, this walk follows the sign to 'Burra Korain Flat', heading down the stairs for a short distance to another signposted intersection.

(1.39 km) Int. Top of Falls and Victoria Creek Tracks to Top of Falls
Optional sidetrip: Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 22 m Time = 1 mins
Climb = 1 m Descent = -1 m
Turn sharp right: From the intersection, this walk follows the 'Top of Falls' sign, down the hill to Victoria Creek. The track then turns left, descending steeply on some rocks. This walk continues downstream along a rockshelf to the top of Victoria Falls.
(Retrace your steps back to the main track, then continue straight to continue along this walk.)

(1.39 km) Int. Top of Falls and Victoria Creek Tracks to Int. Bottom of Falls and Victoria Creek Tracks
Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 95 m Time = 2 mins
Climb = 0 m Descent = -19 m
Continue straight: From the intersection, this walk follows the sign to 'Burra Korain Flats' heading up the hill and then down to a railing, overlooking the Victoria Falls. The track then winds down the slippery hillside, descending to an intersection in front of a large, mossy rock.

(1.49 km) Int. Bottom of Falls and Victoria Creek Tracks to Victoria Falls
Optional sidetrip: Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 45 m Time = 2 mins
Climb = 13 m Descent = 0 m
Veer right: From the intersection, the track follows the hillside towards the sound of a waterfall, keeping the creek some distance below to your left. The track soon opens out onto the cliff of the waterfall. The track then swings around the right-hand side to go up the scree slope to venture behind the waterfall.
(Retrace your steps back to the main track, then veer right to continue along this walk.)

Victoria Falls Alt = 608 m
Victoria Falls, Blue Mountains NP, is a large waterfall dropping over a grey rock overhang. The cascade is produced by Victoria Creek dropping over the approximately-15m cliffs. A scree slope leads up behind the falls, and below the falls the rocks are very slippery. These falls are well worth a visit, with the great views from the top of the falls, and the accessibility of the bottom of the falls, making a great trip.

(1.49 km) Int. Bottom of Falls and Victoria Creek Tracks to Burra Korain Flat Camping Area
Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 1.35 km Time = 29 mins
Climb = 22 m Descent = -126 m
Turn left: From the intersection, this walk follows the track downhill towards the creek, keeping the creek to you right, so soon come to a clearing beside the creek. Here the walk crosses the creek to find a sign pointing to 'Burra Korain Flat' (visible before crossing the creek). (This creek may be impassable after rain). The walk turns left to follow the 'Burra Korain Flat' sign downhill, keeping the creek to your left for over 1km. The track winds and undulating through ferns and rocky outcrops, to open out into the Burra Korain Flat Camping Area, which is signposted.

Burra Korain Flat Camping Area Alt = 488 m
Burra Korain Flat Camping Area, Blue Mountains NP, is a small clearing between the Victoria Creek and Grose River. The campsite is well signposted and has nice sitting logs and plenty of space for a few tents. Water can be accessed from either river or creek but should be treated before use.

(2.84 km) Burra Korain Flat Camping Area to Blue Gum Forest intersection
Route: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 8.79 km Time = 3 hrs 24 mins
Climb = 422 m Descent = -599 m
Continue straight: From the campsite, this walk heads down the hill to the creek and then across it. The track continues up through a grassy area to a clearing with a fireplace and BBQ and a sign to 'Acacia Flat'.
Continue straight: From the camping area, this walk follows the 'Acacia Flats' sign down to the creek. The track crosses the creek and continues along the right-hand bank, heading downstream. The track then undulates and winds on the right side of the creek for approximately 3km in a south-easterly direction. The track crosses a number of creeks, and continues undulating along the south side of the Grose River to an intersection, with a sign pointing back to Burra Korain.
Continue straight: From the intersection, this walk follows the sign to 'Acacia Flats'[1], keeping the creek below on the left. The track continues for approximately 500m, undulating across the steep hillside. The terrain then begins to flatten out as the track leads onto a creek flat area. After a short while, a clearing with a fireplace is passed, on your right. The track continues to undulate along the hillside, with the creek to the left, for approximately 2km, to an area where the creek flats broaden. The track passes some more clearings with fire places, coming to a sign marked 'Blue Gum Forest'. The track passes this sign and continues for approximately 500m to a well-signed intersection.

Blue Gum Forest Alt = 311 m
Blue Gum Forest, Blue Mountains NP, is a large stand of Eucalyptus deanei trees on the junction of the Grose River and Govetts Creek. The magnificent trees stand tall on the flats with low vegetation beneath. The trees of Blue Gum Forest represent the protection efforts of Myles Dunphy, who lead a group to raise the 130 pounds required to buy the Blue Gum Forest - quite a sum in 1931 during the depression - and save it from being cleared. The group were successful and the Blue Gum Forest is now protected within the Blue Mountains National Park. More info

(11.63 km) Blue Gum Forest intersection to Int. Perry's and Dockers Lookout Tracks
Track: Hard - bushtrack
Length = 2.02 km Time = 1 hr 31 mins
Climb = 603 m Descent = -22 m
Turn right: From the intersection, the walk follows the 'Perrys Lookdown Track' sign up the hill. The track heads uphill out of Blue Gum Forest, before tending right to more steeply climb the hill. As the track tends right, it heads up to the spur. When the track joins the spur, it turns left and heads up and continues winding for some time. The track continues up the spur to the cliffline, where it meets a set of steps and handrails. The walk climbs up large, steep steps, winding up through the pass to a memorial lookout at the top of the cliff.
Continue straight: From Memorial Lookout, the walk climbs the stairs, keeping the valley on the right, and then contours left around the hill. The track descends slightly before crossing a bridge, and then turns right before leading up the steps to the signposted intersection.

(13.64 km) Int. Perry's and Dockers Lookout Tracks to Dockers Lookout
Optional sidetrip: Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 19 m Time = 1 mins
Climb = 0 m Descent = -13 m
Veer right: From the intersection, the walk leads for a short distance down the railed path to the visible lookout area, Docker's Lookout.
(Retrace your steps back to the main track, then continue straight to continue along this walk.)

Dockers Lookout Alt = 878 m
Dockers Lookout, Blue Mountains NP, has views over the Grose Valley and Blue Gum Forest below. Mt Banks can be seen standing proudly to the north above the valley.

(13.64 km) Int. Perry's and Dockers Lookout Tracks to Perry's Lookdown
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 41 m Time = 2 mins
Climb = 15 m Descent = 0 m
Turn sharp left: From the intersection, the walk follows the railed stairs up the hill for a short time until coming to Perry's Lookdown - the lookout on the right.

Perry's Lookdown Alt = 907 m
Perry's Lookdown, Blue Mountains NP, has views over the Grose Valley, with Blue Gum Forest nearly directly below and Lockleys Pylon to the south. The lookout is presumably named after Captain William Perry, the Deputy Surveyor General who worked under the leadership of Sir Thomas Mitchell.

(13.68 km) Perry's Lookdown to Perry's Lookdown car park and camping area
Track: Moderate - bushtrack
Length = 77 m Time = 3 mins
Climb = 16 m Descent = 0 m
Continue straight: From the lookout, the walk leads up the stairs (leaving the valley behind) to the dirt road and car park.

Perrys Lookdown campground Alt = 926 m
Perrys Lookdown offers a simple campsite, close to some spectacular lookouts and well located as starting point for longer walks exploring the Grose Valley. There are 5 tent sites and a non-flush toilet, but no water available. This area allows fuel stoves only (no camp fires). The camping area is a short walk from the car park.

Tony Bennett - Great Training for the Himalay IP:58.111.76.xxx | 2013-06-22 02:14:11
It has been about 15 years since I did this walk, but it is still clear in my mind as the day I did. It was one of my final training days before going to the Himalayas.
I did the return walk from Victoria Falls Lookout to Blue Gum Forest in just over 9 hours.
