Blue Gum Swamp

This letter box attracted my attention as we walked along Whitecross Road at Winmalee, to begin a  walk to Blue Gum Swamp.

The walk in the lower Blue Mountains, is also popular with mountain bike riders and bird watchers. It could be done as a circuit of around 9Km, or shortened to return along the same path. As it was a hot day, we did the latter.

The map above was near Whitecross Road Winmalee. We caught a 692W bus from Springwood Station to Winmalee then walked a short distance to the start of the walk.

My thanks to Judith, who led us on this pleasant walk towards the end of last year.


  1. A very picturesque area and in some ways reminds me of our Adelaide Hills - but the height of some of your trees is taller by far.

  2. I have not done this walk. Must go try it sometime.
