Bob was keen on a walk or canyon. We had tentatively planned a canyon trip in the Blue Mountains but had changed our plans with an unfavourable weather forecast and other reasons, so decided instead to visit Tahmoor Gorge. I like the walk through the gorge and was keen to get more photographs.
The Bargo River flows through the Tahmoor Gorge shortly before it joins the Nepean River. It is in part of the proposed Bargo-Nepean National Park.
I was hoping that overnight rain may put the Bargo River’s level up a bit – making for nice photos of the cascades. But the amount of rain in the area turned out to be very small.
We had lunch near where the track climbs back up via Jacks Pass to the rim of the gorge just downstream from the Mermaids Pool.
This is a very nice walk in a spectacular area that deserves to be National Park. If you haven’t visited the area then do so – it is well worth while.
