One of Australia's finest bushwalking trails.

Unfortunately the National Pass is closed until further notice due to a rockfall.

 

The National Pass hiking track was built with picks, shovels, crowbars and dynamite between 1906 and 1907. It involved cutting a zig-zag staircase into a cliff face and became a very popular walking trail.

 

 

After 95 years service, the track had to be closed in 2002. Bushfires, rain storms and landslides played havoc with fencing and wooden bridges. The $1.5 million restoration project won a National Trust award.

 

There is a good choice of excellent accommodation just a short distance from either end of the trail.

 

At Wentworth Falls just 100kms from Sydney and easily accessible by train or car.
