We have fond memories of visiting the Blue Mountains six years ago. It was our first campervan trip through Australia and this beautiful region was our first stop after picking up our camper in Sydney. I still remember the excitement of getting on the road and the novelty of campervan life. Not to mention, the incredible beauty of those mountains. The dramatic scenery and long hikes remain a highlight from that first visit to Australia.
So it was an easy decision where to spend our first nights in our campervan this time around. We drove west out of Sydney (after a few wrong turns and confusion navigating the tunnels and bridges!) and headed straight to Wentworth Falls for an afternoon walk in the same place we hiked six years ago. Our memory of this magical place did not fail us. It was just as spectacular as we recalled—breath-taking views, gorgeous bush, lofty waterfalls and precarious tracks threading along rocky precipices.
That night we camped at the Blackheath Glen Campsite. We woke the next morning, grabbed coffee in town, and then made our way over to the nearby Govetts Leap lookout for another scenic walk down to the Bridal Veil Falls.
Here are some photos from our two days in the Blue Mountains. Unfortunately my Nikon’s battery was completely dead when we arrived. Since we weren’t camping in a powered site, I couldn’t charge it, so I had to settle for iPhone photos alone. It’s a good thing the Blue Mountains are so photogenic!
