Day 1 - Victoria Falls to Burra Korain Flat Camping Area
Start from the Victoria Falls Road car park, at the end of a dirt road. You'll leave your car (or need to be dropped here).
Follow the sign to 'Grose Valley Lookout' down the hill. The walk then winds down steps to a lookout. From here, continue straight past the 'Victoria Falls' sign, down the hill. You will now wind your way down steps, under rocky outcrops and then steeply zigzag downhill for some time, moving away from the rocky outcrop, into ferns and more grassy undergrowth.
At the intersection veer right following the sign to 'Cascades', then continue over the slippery rocks to the bottom of the falls.
From the falls, head over the rocks and downstream (keeping the creek on the right), before turning left into the rainforest vegetation.
At an intersection, follow the sign to 'Burra Korain Flat', heading down the stairs. Turn sharp right at a sign marked 'Top of Falls' and keep heading down to Victoria Creek. The track then turns left, descending over rocks to the top of Victoria Falls.
You'll then head upstream, with the water below on the left, up some rock steps and onto a rock-shelf, before turning steeply to the right, up some more slippery rock steps and soon you get to a sign to 'Burra Korain Flats' - follow it! The track winds uphill to a railing then down the slippery hillside, descending to an intersection in front of a large, mossy rock.
If you want to check out the Victoria Falls, head right following the hillside, keeping the creek below to your left. Retrace your steps to the mossy rock.
At the mossy rock, turn left downhill, keeping the creek to you right. At a clearing, cross the creek and follow the sign to 'Burra Korain Flat' downhill, keeping the creek to your left for over 1km. Day 2 - Burra Korain Flat to Acacia Flat Campground
From the campsite, cross the creek and continue through a grassy area to a clearing with a fireplace and BBQ and a sign to 'Acacia Flat'.
Continue along the right-hand bank, downstream for 3km. You cross a bunch of creeks until you hit an intersection with a sign pointing back to Burra Korain.
Continue straight. The creek is now below on the left. Soon the track begins to flatten out onto a creek flat area and you'll hit a clearing with a fireplace on your right. Keep undulating, with the creek to the left, for approximately 2km, to an area where the creek flats broaden. The track passes some more clearings with fire places, coming to a sign marked 'Blue Gum Forest'.
Be aware this section is very tricky to follow. I do suggest grabbing a map from the National Park office if you are not an experienced hiker.
Now follow the sign 'Camping only at Acacia Flats', heading downstream. The track tends right, away from the Grose River and towards the hills on the right. The walk then heads downhill and across a small creek and on to the Acacia Flats camping area.
I suggest camping on the river side of the track if you can.Day 3 - Acacia Flats to Blackheath Station via Govetts Leap
10.1 km/4.5 hours
The next day, head off with the Grose River to the left, pass a pit toilet on the right before climbing up a hill for about 700m. The track turns right, and then left to contour for some time before descending to the creek bank, which is on the the right. Keep following the creek for 1km along a steep bank until you hit a clearing with a 'No Camping' sign. Turn left down to the creek bank at a signposted intersection of Junction Rock.
From Junction Rock, follow the signs to 'Govetts Leap' sign. After a few creek crossings, the track continues steeply, up stairs in parts, with the creek, passing waterfalls. Beware: the stairs and hills are steep. Eventually you'll hit Govetts leap falls.
Follow the blue signs up and up and up. Eventually you'll see a sign to 'Govetts Leap carpark'.
At the lookout, you MAY decide to bail and walk from here to Blackheath station. Which would be sad. Because there are still highlights to come...
From Govetts Leap Lookout head down some stairs, keeping the valley to the right. The walk turns right over a bridge, across a viewing area and down steep stairs to Horseshoe Falls Lookout.
Follow the path along the cliff top towards the Horseshoe Falls. After some steep stairs follow the sign to 'Popes Glen' keeping the creek below on the right. The track continues to rise before heading back down the hill following the 'Boyds Beach' sign (under the bush).
Turn around and follow the rocky steps uphill and then the arrows to 'Blackheath'. The track continues above the creek (on the right), then crosses a bridge so that the creek is now on the left. The walk crosses a second bridge, then continues for some time up a rocky hill to an intersection below power lines. Keep heading up and cross another bridge, to the intersection with Dell St.
Veer left down Dell St, with the houses to the right. From here it's an easy walk using Google Maps to Blackheath train station.
