The Nayook Canyon Bushtrack

Download & Print Map and Notes




45 mins

2.2 km Circuit


0 m

Experienced only

Passing close by one of the prettiest campsites in the Blue Mountains (Deep Pass), the Nayook Canyon Bushtrack explores the beautiful Nayook Creek. Winding its way through the ferns along the creek bed, climbing small cascading waterfalls and scrambling around rock-pools are all the delights of this walk. Care must be taken on slippery sections, with ropes to help on some steeper parts.* This walk passes through very remote areas and sections have no visible track. At least one person in your group should have training and experience in off track walking and navigation. Even with these notes and a GPS these extra skills and equipment are required.

Moderate track

One of the most popular and famous tracks near Lithgow, the Glow Worm Tunnel Walk goes through a spectacular old railway tunnel. With thousands of glow worms along the sides and roof of the tunnel, a fascinating effect of the stars is produced. Remember, that it is necessary to be quiet so as not to disturb the glow worms. A torch is required – the tunnel is pretty long and it gets really dark in the middle.

245 m

Moderate track

With a steam train ride from the end of the walk back to the start, the Zig-Zag Railway Walk is a very interesting one. Climbing to the ridges above the railway, this walk offers walkers the opportunity to watch the train as it puffs and hoots it’s way from Clarence Station to Bottom Points Station. And that’s even before you have a chance to get on the train and rest all the way back to the start, or alternatively retrace your steps back.
