The Trip

This two day walk into a beautiful valley location provides stunning views across the Blue Mountains escarpments.

The hike is memorable for its amazing bushwalkers path which takes us along the cliff edge through open heathland and casuarina forest and then descends a very steep ravine, eventually bringing us to a valley teeming with wildlife.

Overnight camp is in the heart of the Jamison Valley wilderness by the Kedumba River where there are always mobs of kangaroos grazing and native birds in abundance and we can relax by the glow of a warm fire.

On the second day we travel 9kms through coachwood forest and rainforest before reaching the top of the valley, this takes approximately 4-5 hours including a stop for lunch. A truly stunning hike which allows you to escape the busy-ness of life and reconnect with the bush, yourself and other like minded women ready to share an adventure.
