You ll set off on Leura Cascades trail, passing waterfalls with trail bridges, allowing you to get up close to the towering falls above. Although there are steep steps in sections, most of the trail has handrails and the bridges are fenced. Bring your hiking poles for extra support.

We ll take it slow. Why rush?

You ll need time for lookout photos, exploring sandstone caves and taking in the beauty of the world heritage area. We ll also find a rocky perch for a delicious morning tea.

The trail soon blends in with The Dardanelles Pass, a harder section with plenty of well secured steps. The but burn is worthwhile rewarding you with breathtaking views of the Jamison Valley.

It's then onto the Giant Stairway, towering up the sandstone cliffs where you will see the Three Sisters in all their glory.

Time permitting, we ll stop via the local coffee shop to sip and view the distance we just achieved (have some lunch) before making our way back to Gordan Falls Reserve.
