I love a good trek, and the national pass was exactly my cup of tea. Although the trek is rated 'hard', it was not as difficult as I thought it would be. There are plenty of steps, but if you have a reasonable level of fitness it is very do-able. The walk is well signed and very safe. Plenty of railings to hold on to.
On to the scenery - it certainly did not disappoint. We had breathtaking views of the mountains, and the waterfall was beautiful. We could even see a rainbow forming above it when the wind was strong. The 4 hour walk was very worthwhile, and I will not hesitate to return.
Directions - following the suggestions of some reviews, we started the walk from wentworth falls instead of conservation hut. We took the train to wentworth falls, started the trek with Darwin's walk (2km), then followed sign posts that led us to the national pass, and exited at conservation hut. I strongly recommend going in this direction, as the part of the walk at the edge of the cliff (near wentworth falls) has really steep steps, and if you were walking in the opposite direction, that will be near the end of the walk, and it is really tiring. Also, try to avoid going when there is rain/slight drizzle. The winds are really strong up there and it's really difficult to find shelter.
