You’ll feel like you’re on the edge of the world as you gaze across Jamieson Valley from Leura Cascades picnic area. A reviving break while on a driving holiday or cycling trip, it’s also a great base for exploring the dramatic cliffs in the southern section of Blue Mountains National Park.
With a picture perfect backdrop, why not make the most of the opportunity and assemble the family for a group photo? Tuck into a leisurely lunch as you memorise the magnificent views.
Lie back in the shade and be serenaded by the gentle tinkering of the nearby waterfalls and local birdlife. You might hear the distinct call of the bell miner or the mimicking song of the lyrebird here.
The nearby Fern Bower circuit walk is a heart-pumper, or if you’re after a leisurely stroll, follow the track downstream to the top of Bridal Veil Falls or take the Prince Henry Cliff Walk east towards Gordon Falls Lookout.
