It's a dangerous place, that Blue Mountains National Park. Much safer just to stay in Scenic World!

We missed this spot in the carpark on the way in, which I guess is why we didn't have an adventure. Perhaps if you meet here you will be guaranteed a rope jam or other incident to add adventure to your day.
