We take the 7:23 Blue Mountains train every Sunday, with some exceptions. No need to RSVP but before you set foot make sure you check NPA site to see if walk is cancelled due to snow, fires, heat, storms, or track closures. If you like long walks, there is an option for you to walk back to double the distance. Steep and slippery sections.

Then we travel down past the Great Lakes of Adelaide, Meston and Junction to the interestingly named Never Never and the Mersey River which we follow through to the Overland Track at Harnett Falls. From this point we go south then north into Pine Valley for 2 days of magic, climbing the Acropolis, the Labyrinth and other scenic gems. Finally, there is an easy walk down to Lake St Clair for a ferry ride to Cynthia Bay and a pickup with bushwalkers transport back to Hobart. Rock scrambling and a bit off-track walking in the Never Never, potential extreme weather.

Some great campsites; some nice swimming holes; mostly short days; with at least one 2-night stop, all make this a really terrific walk. There is great demand for the limited walk permits at this time of the year so we need to book close to the possible one-year in advance. Seven days (6 nights) of actual walking. A day of snorkeling on the reef prior to the walk is also planned.
