Blue Gum Forest is situated in the Grose Valley in the Blue Mountains National Park. It is a stand of magnificent blue gum eucalypt trees. There is a large camping area nearby at Acacia Flat. There are several tracks to chose from to reach the forest. Tambo selected a difficult 25km route starting from Victoria Falls Lookout, descending into the Grose Valley, walking along the Grose River to Blue Gum Forest and Acacia Flat and then exiting via Junction Rock, Govett Gorge, past Bridal Veil Falls and up to Govetts Leap Car Park. The hike was specifically aimed to give the more experienced Tambo Scouts something more challenging than they had done previously with Tambo. Kim’s photos can be found here and Ivan’s here.
