Take in the serenity of Blue Mountains National Park on Lockleys Pylon walking track. Named after J.G. Lockley, a journalist who supported conservation efforts to save the Blue Gum Forest from logging in the 1930s. With some of the best views in Blue Mountains, this walk traverses through the heath to a small peak overlooking eucalypt forests of the Grose Valley. Climb up to Lockleys Pylon and take in the Golden sandstone cliffs of Mount Hay and Mount Banks. Spring is great for photograph opportunities, as you’ll walk through a sea of wildflowers, including red lambertias and even the pink flannel flower if wildfires have passed through.
