In the middle of the Canyon Walk at Blackheath is this beautiful area of pools where you rock hop & enjoy the serenity of the steep cliffs & lush fernery.

This walk has recently been restored after storm & fire damage to become one of the most enjoyable walks in the Blue Mountains.

This is in the Blue Mountains National Park in Australia.

Views from the same walk

A view from just up the road

Country born & bred but now located in Sydney, Australia.

I’m fascinated by the beauty of nature & in particular Australian native flowers & landscapes. I also love colour & anything unusual.
The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.
