If you're pitching your tent at Acacia Flat campground, you can give yourself a big hug. You've joined a rare breed of intrepid campers who have walked into the Grose Valley in one of the most secluded wilderness areas in the Blue Mountains.
Accessed by walking tracks from either Perrys lookdown or Pierces Pass, you'll camp amongst the rough barked apple and stringybarks. While you're boiling up the billy, try adding a gum leaf before you sit back and soak up the vibes of the biggest eucalypt factory on the planet. When all that fresh air and walking has you ready for bed, crawl into your tent and fall asleep to the whispers of the bush.
If you're a birdwatcher, the nearby Blue Gum Forest is a haven for birds and wildlife. There's a lot to see, so be sure to pack binoculars and keep an eye above as kestrels and wedge-tailed eagles often surf the thermals near the cliffs.
