Tahmoor Gorge Walk – 20 February 2018

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.

On other occasions (see here and here), I had walked down the gorge. This time we started by descending from the rim to the lower end of the gorge and then walking up through it.

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.

More photos are online here on my website. My earlier post has details of the access and tracks in the area.

    Hey Dave, just wondering if there are any events regarding saving Blue Mtns wild rivers from proposed Warragamba Dam upgrade?
    Just found about this today and it’s made me quite upset.

    If there’s any event on in Syd. or things I could possibly do to help, let me know.
    Thanks
