Distance 7KM, Difficulty: Blue
Located in the Macquarie Pass National Park this beauty has many hidden gems and definitely worth having on your to-do list. A gentle hike or run along Clover Hill Road with the option to head up Clover Hill on your way out. Continuing along the dirt road, the trail will turn into a single trail which is quite technical and challenging as you pass Rainbow Falls, Mulangong Falls, and finishing at Clover Falls (feature photo). The trail is very hard to find at times, however, there were red ribbons on the trees to follow when I completed this trail to make it a little easier.
Return the same way back for an awesome day out.
Pack food and hydration if hiking, runners will compete in around 60-90 minutes and walkers over 2hrs pending on how often you stop for photos and to take in the scenery.
Distance 9.9km, Difficulty: Red
Drink in the awe-inspiring views of the Southern Highlands’ as explore your way along the East and West Rim trails starting from the Fitzroy Falls Visitor Centre hub.
You’ll begin this route starting on the East rim track which will also take you along the Wildflower Track. As a 6.1km out and back trail, the trail is both scenic and informative, taking you to a number of spectacular lookouts with views of the valley below and the falls, as well as offering you an exciting excursion through a diverse range of native flora.
After making your way back along the east rim trail, you will return to the diversion that will take you now out to the west rim trail. Following this gently undulating trail, you’ll traverse the western escarpment of the valley making your way through eucalypt forests and lush rainforest all the way out to Renown Lookout. Along the way, make sure you take some time to explore the multiple lookouts along the way that will boast some breathtaking views of the dramatic gorges and waterfalls in the Morton National park.
There is parking available at the Fitzroy fall visitor centre. A parking fee of $4 for all-day parking will be charged.
If you are wanting a great pie as a reward after your adventure, it is well worth the quick drive south down Nowra road to the Fitzroy Falls General Store. Known for its now award-winning pies and astonishing range of pies, there's no reason why you wouldn't make your way there.
Distance: 10.6km, Difficulty: Red
The Curra Moors loop track through the eastern section of the Royal National Park is one to definitely put on the list if you are wanting to experience some of the best parts of the Coastal Trek but don’t want to do the entire thing. With dramatic sandstone cliffs, spectacular coastal views and waterfalls spilling into the ocean, all of which is packed into a manageable loop track, there's no doubt you won’t be left at the end wanting more.
There is a small parking lot at the start of the trail but if this fills up you can park on the side of the road.
There is no 'safe' drinking water available on course. Although you do visit a number of creeks/rivers it's best not to drink from them as of the foot traffic around and also pollution from the main road.
Distance: 2.4km, Difficulty: Green
Minnehaha Falls (or Minni-Ha-Ha Falls) is a must-do for all waterfall and swimming hole lovers. Only a short drive from Katoomba this gem offers a lot of bang for your buck and plan your day right, you might get it to yourself.
Plenty of parking available.
