Walking Kanangra Walls

Travel & Outdoors

Over the weekend I got my city-weary self out of Sydney and back to my home town of Bathurst, embarking on a side-trip to the staggeringly beautiful Kanangra-Boyd National Park, part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, for a bushwalk. The walk led from Eucalyptus-dense bushland, through low-lying rain forest dotted with caves and the odd trace of European exploration, and up on to the sandstone Kanangra Tops plateau. The vistas from atop the plateau, which falls rather precariously away into the gorge below, are stunning – the sweeping slopes of the Thurat Spires are dotted with waterfalls, and the valley stretches east over over rolling mountains to Katoomba and beyond. It was a hazy day, which didn’t make for fantastic photos but certainly contributed towards the moodiness of the millennia-old mountains and the sheer isolation of the area. So Instagrammable.
