what our clients said...
Just a note to say thank you very much to all the team for a great walk over the weekend. The guys were great, Dario's logistic and cooking skills were exceptional, Meaghan was great company and a big hit for the girls, and Mark was a really good host. The food, drink and support stuff e.g. tents were excellent, really well beyond expectations, contributing to an amazing experience.

All the best,
Barry Lanesman


Just a brief note to thank you for a splendid weekend adventure. All of us thought that both, the scenery and the organization of the walk ( especially the food!!) surpassed expectation. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the walk to others, or to do it again some time.

3 day six foot track walk
Join us on a guided walk of  the famous Six Foot Track from the Blue Mountains to Jenolan Caves. Winding through
State forests and national parks, the track follows the 45 kilometre route of the original 1884 horse track
from Katoomba to Jenolan Caves. Crossing mountain ranges and falling into deep valleys, the track features
sheer sandstone cliffs, waterfalls and panoramas of richly-forested valleys. We'll overnight in a Bushwalking Lodge near the picturesque Cox's River on night one and camp under the stars on night two where we'll enjoy a glass of wine or beer, a delicious dinner, and campsite sing-along. Time is available at the end of the walk to explore the magnificent Jenolan Caves before we catch the bus back to start of the walk. Limited places available - don't miss out!

This is Glamping at it's best!
Our packages include snack packs, breakfasts, 2 lunches and delicious gourmet dinners such as fresh snapper, Thai Chicken curries , french crepes - plus much more, as well as refreshments and alcohol (beer and wine). All group camping and cooking equipment is transported daily by our support vehicle. On night one you'll stay in a Bushwalking Lodge at Coxs River with comfy beds and on night two camp under the stars in with comfortable tents and air mattresses supplied for those that choose the deluxe package.

Two levels of packages to choose from
We have two packages to choose from. For those training and wanting to get fit, you can pay less and carry
your own tent and personal items. Or for those that want to be pampered, we'll carry and set up your tent,
with a deluxe mattress and provide you with a comfy campside chair to relax in after a long day's walk.
