The Grand Canyon

Voted one of the best walks in Australia on our doorstep

The historic 6km loop track takes you into the heart of the World Heritage-listed landscape. It's an intimate and adventurous track which walkers have trodden since 1907. Located just 600 meters from Chalets at Blackheath or a short 10-minute walk to Evans Lookout and you'll arrive at the entrance to The Grand Canyon. A slow stroll through the canyon will take around 3 hours to complete the loop, exiting the walk at Neates Glen carpark, just a few minutes walk back to the chalets.

Widely regarded as one of the most impressive walking tracks in Australia, the Grand Canyon Walk will leave you in awe as you hike through a beautiful landscape of lush rainforest with several creek crossings, small waterfalls, high cliff walls, and rock overhangs to take in. The well-shaded track meanders through luscious native vegetation of ferns and golden wattles and remains close to Greaves Creek with an abundance of native plants that line the Grand Canyon track.

Although this is challenging walk, you don’t need specialist hiking or abseiling equipment, so comfortable walking shoes are all you’ll need to get out there and explore. Please speak to our resort ambassadors if you would like to borrow some hiking poles.
