If the great outdoors is calling you, we’ve listed 5 of the best treks you can knock over in a day or less while enjoying the awe-inspiring natural scenery.

1. Leura Cascades

Distance: 6km (about a 2 hour round trip)

3. Cliff Top Walking Track

Cliff Top walking track will get your heart-pumping and you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views across the Grose Valley and an abundance of bird life.
