Prince Henry Cliff Walk, Blue Mountains, Sydney NSW

Description

The Prince Henry Cliff Walk takes you on a stunning hike over very uneven ground to a lookout where you stand on the edge of a very deep valley! Before your eyes, at Bridal View Lookout, is a waterfall splashing all the way down! It feels as if you are going to fall down into the valley, the path down to the lookout is so steep! The rock formations all around you are glorious! 
There are various parts of the hike. One takes you to the Tarpeian Rock Lookout where you stand on wavey rock taking in awesome vistas of Mt Solitary and the far-off valleys. Incredible! This is nature at its finest, and not to be missed! Make sure you visit Everglades Gardens while in the Blue Mountains- gorgeous! Also nice is a visit to the private garden, Glenhaven Garden. If you need a place to eat, check out the cafes in Leura town.
