The Six Foot Track is more of a challenge than a rewarding hike as spectacular views are limited. I recommend doing it in between March to September as water is only available at campsites and streams along the track and recommended to be filtered before...More

Katoomba to Jenolan. Lots of hillwork. Stunning scenery. Hiked with Life's an Adventure and was not disappointed. Cold and rainy at summit on day 2 but even that was beautiful.

If you have an older 6Ft Track guide book (like myself) it probably says that there are no facilities at Alum Camp Site.........no tables, no water tanks, no toilets. You will be pleased to know that all of these facilities have fairly recently been added....More

A beautiful track however you have to be in the mindset to "Finish, Push on" if you get my drift. Usually the people who dislike the track don't have the right physique however if you are well prepared it can be done in two days...More
