Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longPublic Transport | There are public transport options to and from this activity.The 1813 crossing of the Blue Mountains was the expedition led by Gregory BlaxlandWilliam Lawson and William Charles Wentworth, which became the first successful crossing of the Blue Mountains in New South Wales by European settlers.  Mal January did not exactly follow the original route but mapped out his hiking route and led a group to cross the Blue Mountains twice.  Thanks to his generosity for permitting me to use his route, we can repeat this epic journey to cross the Blue Mountains. We take the 7:23 Blue Mountains train every Sunday, with some exceptions. If you like long walks, there is an option for you to walk two sections on some days. Also, some days have long walks. Steep and slippery sections.

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.
