Overview

Trip Code: BMWG

The historic Grand Canyon walking loop was first established in 1907 and is one of the most popular walks in the Blue Mountains. The Grand Canyon walk is a not-to-be-missed classic, exploring some of the areas most diverse and spectacular ecosystems from the scrubby and harsh dry sclerophyll forest to otherworldly cool-temperate rainforests. Upon arriving in the heart of the Grand Canyon, we'll hike amongst the Coachwood and Sassafras trees through a luscious rainforest chasm with towering sandstone walls lined with mosses and ferns. Your Blue Mountains walking guide will share local secrets and interpret the unique environment offering insights into the local flora and fauna. We will emerge from the Canyon at Evan Lookout where we'll enjoy views over the Grose Valley Wilderness.

We believe our bushwalking adventures are heaps of fun, and we want to ensure you have the best experience possible. For our half day bushwalking experiences, participants require a reasonable of fitness. This hike is graded introductory to moderate and involves walking 4 hours over rugged terrain with some steep ascents and descents. In order to complete this hike we advise that you undertake regular exercise three or four times a week in the month prior to your departure. Hill walking with a day pack is recommended. Bushwalking participants will get the most out of their bushwalk with BMAC if they feel comfortable walking up and down stairs and on uneven ground.

Why travel with us

On our adventures you’ll notice that we work hard to go above and beyond to deliver a service that exceeds your expectations. If part of your adventure doesn’t meet your expectations and you are not 100% satisfied with your experience let us know and we will fix it for you. And if you aren’t completely satisfied by our response, we will refund that part of your adventure. (Conditions Apply).

High Quality Services

Passionate, highly qualified and experienced guides; gourmet lunches prepared by Altitude Deli in Blackheath; quality equipment in good condition that are regularly inspected and exceed industry standards – with us you can expect a high quality Blue Mountains adventure.

Our Safety Record

We don’t cut corners on safety. Over and above our well-stocked and maintained first aid kits, we also carry extra safety gear such as bivvy bags and emergency sleeping bags; and our roping practices are designed to ensure the best outcome should a rescue or assist be required. You can be confident our guides are working hard to keep you safe.

No Hidden Extras

Our adventures are all inclusive. All adventures include licenses, equipment, professional guides and everything else you need for an action packed adventure. All you have to bring is suitable clothing, comfortable enclosed footwear, a water bottle and a camera to capture the day. And if you don’t have any of the necessary clothing we’ll happily provide you with the basics at no additional cost.

Diverse Range of Adventures

We offer more adventure locations in the Blue Mountains than anyone else. The canyons and climbs of the Blue Mountains are many and varied. Ever heard of Du Faurs Creek? Want to know what’s involved in Dalpura? Do the names ‘Bunny Buckets’ or ‘Dirty Rotten Pig’ sound weird, but you’re still intrigued? Keen to explore Dargan’s, Birrabang, or Breakfast Creek? If you are looking for something specific - just ask!


We respectfully acknowledge the Darug, Darkinjung, Dharawal, Gundungurra, Wanaruah, and Wiradjuri language groups as the traditional custodians of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area and thank them for sharing this beautiful land with us.
