1938 MAP (PART 32): HAZELBROOK - VICTOR FALLS - TERRACE FALLS - THE LAKE - LAKE AVENUE - HAZELBROOK

LIST OF ALL BLOGS AND RELEVANT VIDEOS

The Terrace Falls area at Hazelbrook is one of the most interesting in the Blue Mountains. I can recommend Keith Painter's "Pocket Pal" booklet titled "Terrace Falls" for modern descriptions of walks in this area. See the website www.mountainmistbooks.com for more information.
There are many online photographs, walk descriptions and videos you can check out. Here are a few.

LIST OF ALL BLOGS AND RELEVANT VIDEOS


The places visited on this walk are part of a reserve set up as a memorial to Mrs Thomas M Wilson of Woodford in 1934. The story of the opening may be found here. It's from the "Katoomba Daily", 7th April 1934.
NOTE: The memorial park became inaccessible from the highway during road widening some years ago. The footbridge over the railway line is still there.

1938 Map (Part 25): LINDEN TO KING'S CAVE AND RETURN



There are many similar photographs to be found using Google
This looks like a straightforward walk. The sandstone hereabouts is prone to form rock shelters (not caves). This is the well known Hawkesbury Sandstone, which does not occur beyond Woodford.

There is a very thorough heritage description of King's Cave here: https://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/heritageapp/ViewHeritageItemDetails.aspx?ID=1170704
