Bruce Cameron with the new second edition release of his book A History of the Blue Labyrinth: Blue Mountains National Park.

Fascinating historical insights, little known facts, interesting yarns and beautiful photos of Blue Mountains locations are presented in Bruce Cameron's newly released second edition of A History of the Blue Labyrinth: Blue Mountains National Park.

Launched recently by Blue Mountains historian and writer John Low, the book provides a historical insight into the Aboriginal occupation of the Blue Labyrinth and the European involvement since the first explorers attempted to make sense of the rivers, creeks and ridges.

With more than 350 pages of colour and black and white photos, the hardcopy book reveals the amazing stories of Euroka Clearing, Red Hands Cave, Glenbrook and Erskine Creeks, Saint Helena, Ingar and Kings Tableland and many more.

The Blue Labyrinth is bounded by the main Blue Mountains range from Glenbrook to Wentworth Falls, stretching along Kings Tableland to Warragamba Dam and along the Nepean River to join Glenbrook Creek. It has a rich history of human involvement and connection to the land.

The second edition features new chapters including The Hall brothers, The Warrigals, aircraft crashes and bushfires.

The book is available at local bookshops, tourist information centres and selected camping shops.
