It actually doesn t mean walking during the night! - It means learning how to prepare, pack and enjoy a weekend away camping under the stars. If you re new to overnight hiking, this is the perfect introduction with Women Want Adventure.
This trip is lead by WWA Founder and qualified outdoor guide Monique. She has designed the weekend to support and teach you along the way and have as much fun as possible.
If you haven't done any hiking or overnight hikes before, this trip is a good place to start.
Leave the bustle of the city behind on this two day women s introduction overnight hike that will take you down into the valley to the Cox River. You will have the chance to cross the Swing Bridge and take a dip in the river.
Meeting at Megalong Valley Tea Rooms, your leader will take you through a full hike briefing and distribute group gear/food. You will learn how to best prepare your pack and be ready for the day hiking. From Megalong Valley Tea Rooms, it s a short 10 minute drive down the road to the starting point.
The Six Foot Track Hike can be broken up into different sections from Katoomba all the way to Jenolan Caves. It's usually a 3 day challenge stretch, however we are walking the more scenic section from Megalong Valley Road to the Cox River (Swing Bridge) and return in an easier 2 days.
