Mount Hay Road, Leura
Leading to the edge of the renowned Grose Wilderness, Mount Hay Road – Leura is an unsealed road ideally suited for cycling and car touring. Packed with walking tracks, wildflowers and breathtaking views, it’s a great day out in Blue Mountains National Park.
With several steep sections, it’s generally an easy ride across the sandstone plateau. As the light filters through the canopy of scribbly gums overhead, you might glimpse the distinctive giant dragonfly, unique to this area. Along the clifftops, rare pink flannel flowers, which germinate after fire, create a carpet of vivid colour.
Arriving at the end of the road, marvel at the majestic gorge views across to the highest peak, Mount Banks, and down to the magnificent Grose River below. Unpack a picnic for a well-deserved lunch before the next adventure begins. There’s nearby walking tracks as well as rock climbing and canyoning for the well-prepared, experienced canyoners who are looking for a challenging experience in a unique environment.
