Most people know that there are lots of different bush tracks and walking trails in the Blue Mountains. After a busy week, I thought a day outside of Sydney doing some hiking would be just the thing I needed to add some spring back in my step.

For Christmas I received a Blue Mountains Best Bushwalks book, we decided to try out one of the Waterfall Circuits. so my partner and I decided to throw on our walking shoes, jump in the car and head towards the mountains.

The circuit we went on was located near Honour Avenue and Livingstone Street in South Lawson. The track was three kilometres long and took about an hour and half to complete. The grade of the track was documented as being easy, but I'd suggest you wear hiking boots or at least water proof shoes as the area was quite wet and muddy when we there.

It didn't take long at all to find the waterfalls on the trail, there were four on the round trip walk. They were Adelina falls, Junction falls, Federal falls and finally Cataract falls. The waterfalls had a small beach and while we didn't pack lunch, it would have been the perfect place to have a picnic. Most of the track was reinforced with wooden stairs and easy to follow.

Being a fan of bushwalks and waterfalls, the walk was exactly what I needed to recharge the batteries, away from the weekly hustle and bustle of the city.

Nice write up and photos. The falls are looking great after all this rain.

I spent much of my youth walking the falls both sides of Lawson (there are lovely falks the other side of the railway) spending many hours alone just wandering admiring the flora. As the daughter of one who was born and lived on the mountains, mum would take my brother and I on walks pointing out the different species and allowing us to take home "mountain devils" to make items with them, impressing that we were only to take from the ground and not a living species.
