  • We started at Jenolan Caves so that we wouldn't experience too much time pressure, and also because my knees are not good on long steep descents. We thought the walk worked well in this direction. The...  more »

  • Fantastic track for hiking. Can be done in 1-2-3 days, depends on your pace. Nice camping spots along the way, well maintained tracks, quite quiet in the off seasons if you're after tranquillity. Do not underestimate the degree of elevation change you'll go through. Sore legs will be had if you're unprepared.
  • I've been here twice and I've loved it both times. Really diverse walk - so you get to see a range of different landscapes and geographical features like rivers and bridges. The walk is quite long and depending on how you are feeling you can do a single section of the track for a day hike.
  • Great hike with our family. One of the best backpacking experiences yet. It is a challenge in places but worth the ending at Jenolan Caves. Gorgeous!
  • Great Scienic Walk!!!!!!!!!!!
