The National Pass walking trail is one of the best walks of Australia. It leads you through six kilometres of majestic scenery, with cliffs, valley views and waterfalls. The track was built with picks, shovels, crowbars and dynamite between 1906 and 1907. In the early 2000s it had a major restoration. The walk has a 210 metres descent, 210 metres ascent, but the path is very well built and the continuous beautifull vistas make the walk almost effortless. The grand finale is "The Grand Staircase", a zig-zag staircase cut into the cliff face from the bottom of the Wentworth Falls to the top.
