Rich with indigenous history and significance, teeming with biodiversity and blessed with landforms of overwhelming beauty, the Blue Mountains is one of Australia’s most remarkable wilderness areas.

Set just 90 minutes northwest of Sydney and spanning more than a million hectares, the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area offers a spectacular wild landscape of rugged sandstone mountains, towering pinnacles and sheer escarpments, cut by deep gorges, canyons and waterfalls, and swathed in the dense eucalypt forests whose oils give the mountains their famous slate-blue hue.

Each of our Blue Mountains bushwalks will take you past sacred landforms, through stands of significant flora and on to some of the most impressive lookouts the mountains have to offer, with your guide sharing local secrets and interpreting the unique environment along the way.

Our program of canyoning experiences covers everyone from absolute beginner to experienced athlete and will see you scrambling, wading and swimming through serene sandstone caves and intricately-carved canyons, abseiling down waterfalls, negotiating narrow chasms and tackling adrenalin-pumping waterjumps and duckunders—it won’t take you long to see why this is hailed as one of the world’s top canyoning destinations.

Join us for an unforgettable adventure in the Blue Mountains!

Exceptional Leadership

As our client feedback will attest to, there is no better team of leaders than those at Australian Walking Holidays. Their expertise & knowledge is matched only by their friendly nature and their desire to impart everything they know about the Australian landscape to you.

Small Groups

Your Comfort

The best available food, warmth and shelter is standard on our active wilderness holidays, with selected character lodgings as well as quality camp craft and equipment. This ensures that you have the most rewarding and memorable experience.


Sustainable Travel

Sustainable travel is at the core of everything we do, which is why have policies in place to ensure destinations retain their natural character and cultural diversity. Environmental values filter through every aspect of the company, from the minimal impact camping procedures through to the interpretation of environment. The aim is to give you big adventures while we maintain a small footprint!
