A short walk to explore one of the curious features of the Blue Mountains - a hanging swamp surrounded by sand stone cliffs and rock pagodas.

A beautiful short loop through a pristine hanging swamp. The drive in could be tricky in wet weather with a 2wd. Requires some clearance. The only disappointing part is see the coal mining in the distance as you start the walk. This is near the Gardens of Stone National Park which is under threat from coal mining. See before it is despoiled by the mining industry.
