If you only use public transport to get around, getting out of the city and joining a day hike with Women Want Adventure is easier than you think!
This hike to Kingfisher Pools is a guaranteed crowd pleaser. From the viewpoint at Mt Westmacott to the secluded Kingfisher Pool where we stop for a yummy Anzac biscuit and swim, this hike has it all.
Despite its proximity to Sydney, this hike is packed with great wildlife and stunning National Park views. The pace of hiking is slow. We mean it slow. Women can take time to soak in surrounding while chatting with ladies and making new connections.
The feeling of adventure starts right from the start of the trail as we walk along the trails of Heathcote National Park. With a variety of terrain ranging from rocky fire trails to tight tracks through to scrub. Starting from the trail-head on Warabin Street, we will take the Bullawarring Track down to the intersection with the fire-trail and continue our walk past Lake Toolooma and the Camp Coutts. From here, we hit the hills before rock scrambling our way up to the summit of Mount Westmacott for a photo! Coming back down the hill, we will continue along the fire trail and take a detour to the Kingfisher Pools for morning tea and a quick dip if we re lucky! The hike then finishes its loop back where we started. The walk is about 8-9km in distance and has a lot of uneven surfaces - a good base level of fitness is required for the rock scrambling and hills.
If driving: type Warabin Street, Waterfall into Maps and follow the directions. We are meeting at the northern end of the street in the cul-de-sac there is a National Parks sign at the trail-head, your leader will be standing here waiting for you!
If catching the train: Catch the train to Waterfall. When you exit the platform, you will come out on Kooraban Street. Walk west over the bridge and continue to the intersection of Kooraban St and Warabin St. Turn right onto Warabin St and walk all the way to the end of the cul-de-sac where we will be waiting!
