Leura Cascades Fern Bower circuit is a moderately challenging track along an impressive cliff line, with waterfalls and gorgeous scenic views. A great walk for those who love to get amongst it, you’ll venture deep into the lush vegetation of Jamison Valley in Blue Mountains National Park. With so many lookouts and vistas, it’s a photographer’s paradise.
From Leura Cascades picnic area, this medium track leads to a magnificent lookout over the top of Bridal Veil Falls before winding down to the base pools, where you’ll be refreshed with cool, moist air. Here the track joins the Amphitheatre track, which follows the mid point of the cliff back to Fern Bower track.
Following down into the dense rainforest where light filters through the dense canopy, listen for the call of the catbird or wompa pigeon. The Amphitheatre track then joins Fern Bower track, which takes walkers back up to the Prince Henry Cliff walk near Cliff Drive, a short way from the picnic area. Remember to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch.
