‘Silvermere is located in the heart of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area’.
The unique plants and animals that live in the Blue Mountains reflect an extraordinary story of the evolution of Australia's unique vegetation and animal communities. It is an area of breathtaking views, rugged tablelands, sheer cliffs, deep valleys and swamps.
The Greater Blue Mountains was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 2000. The following are our recommendations for nature based attractions whilst visiting Silvermere.

Avoid the crowds (or westerly winds) by going on a walk only known to the locals!

Take a short walk west along Lake St, descend some timber stairs and follow the path to reach the lake.

Retrace the footsteps of arguably the world’s most famous naturalist who undertook this walk in 1836 on his world voyage aboard the Beagle!
The “Best one day walk in the Mountains” and possibly Australia! Here Australia’s ‘green’ Grand Canyon is on show.
