About this Event

TRIP HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Soak up the Jamison Valley views
  • Discover Blue Mountains trails beyond tourist locations
  • Marvel at the iconic Three Sisters
  • Cruise the thrilling Scenic Railway
  • Walk with like-minded women at at a slow pace
  • Enjoy delicious and healthy food prepared by your local guide

The Blue Mountains offers superb hiking experiences with stunning scenery, enormous sandstone cliffs and escarpments.

On our women’s specially designed itinerary, we begin at Katoomba Falls Reserve for a meet and greet. We head off along the Cliff Top Walk, which provides a great sense of the landscape from above with many historic lookouts along the way.

After a morning tea break, we steadily decent the Giant Stairway - taking in the Three Sisters views as we pass.

Enjoy exploring the base of the towering sandstone cliffs as you reach the bottom of the valley. From here, it’s a moderately flat stretch of sheltered rainforest, mixed ferns and black wattles. This is a great chance spot unique wildlife and flora and take in local knowledge from your guide.

It’s then onto the thrill of the Scenic World Railway where you’ll have a number of impressive photo opportunities as you ride out of the valley. No steps required!

At the top, we combine the stunning views with a delicious lunch before making our way back to the meeting location along the Cliff Top Walk.

This hike is suitable for both women who are beginners and those with hiking experience. There is a variety of terrain and the walking pace is slow.

TESTIMONIAL:

“It was a great hike and we had a wonderful guide Bindi. Thanks to Bindi we had our healthy lunch prepared for us and hot cuppa along the trail. The walk down the Giant Stairs was spectacular (on many levels!). We also saw a lyrebird and learned a lot about flora and fauna. Loved the ride on the railway and meeting all the other women.”
