Cross open farmland and gaze back up at the Blue Mountains escarpment in the afternoon.

Awake to unfamiliar birdsong and the aroma of the morning brew! Savour a continental or cooked breakfast.
Climb the Black Range in the afternoon and take in the views across rugged wilderness. Watch the landscape unfold before your eyes, changing at every turn in the road.
End the day with a relaxing stay in local accommodation a few minutes down the road. Settle back in a comfortable chair and discuss the day’s wildlife sightings.
Start your day with a relaxing breakfast among friends. A short drive has us back on the trail and you can begin the final leg of the journey.
After a morning stroll through the alpine forest, the countryside opens up, revealing steep-sided mountains. From here it is a steady descent into the limestone country of the Jenolan Caves valley, known for its rich diversity of heritage and show caves. Finish your walk with a celebratory drink at Caves House or a complimentary cave tour, before returning to Katoomba at the conclusion of the day.
