Our fantastic 3-day guided pack free Six Foot Track Walk journeys from Jenolan Caves to Katoomba in the Blue Mountains. Winding through State forests and national parks, the 6 Foot Track walk follows the 44-kilometre route of the original 1884 bridle track.
A Pack Free Walk
This walk has been designed for those looking for a guided Pack Free walking experience with everything done for you so you can focus on enjoying the walk. Our guests won’t be asked to carry their clothes or overnight bags for the entire tour, these will be transported for you each day. This is a big advantage for our guests, in that you will avoid carrying a heavy rucksack on your back every day. With Life’s An Adventure, you will carry as little as your water bottle, camera and lunch each day!
Accommodation varies across our tours based on what is available in each area, we always choose the best available as close to the trail as possible. We don’t believe in destroying the natural environment by building in National Parks and areas of conservation, but we do believe in supporting local businesses and staying in existing accommodation. Having a comfortable place to rest is an important part of our walking experience. On this tour, you will spend two nights at the Valley View a cosy homestay with stunning views over the valley and an infinity pool.

This walk has been designed to follow the direction from Jenolan Caves to Katoomba. This allows us to walk towards the spectacular Katoomba Escarpment providing magnificent views as you walk, rather than the best of the views be behind you all the way.

We enter the Temple of Baal Cave via the ‘Binoomea Cut’ along the manmade tunnel. Then, they travel down the ‘Dragon’s Throat’, via a dramatic winding staircase. There are 2 massive chambers, one 42 metres high and filled with beautiful formations. One of these formations, the 9 metres tall ‘Angel’s Wing’ shawl, is one of the largest cave shawls in the world. The cave also offers beautiful examples of crystal helictites. After our walk we start our walk on the Six Foot Track to Black Range. We pass the stunning Carlotta’s Arch overlooking Blue Lake and head up Binoomera Ridge. On the way, we will pass the pretty Jenolan Cottages a favourite stomping ground for mobs of kangaroos. Cross several fern gullies and creeks and forests of eucalypt before reaching Black Range Campground. Here our vehicle will meet us and transfer us to our accommodation for the night at the Valley View Homestay.

Tonight enjoy a two-course meal featuring local produce and wines and chat about the day’s adventures.
Enjoy a delicious breakfast in the restaurant. We then transfer back to the trail to start our walk down the range to Coxs River. Today has many downhill sections so walking poles will come in handy as we will be descending 800 metres over the course of the day. We follow the fire trail passing through wooded country past Mini Mini saddle with views ahead to the valley. On the last descent into Coxs River, our vehicle will meet us and whisk us away to our accommodation at the Valley View Homestay.
