Ruined Castle walking track is an absolute jewel that can be found in the spectacular Blue Mountains World Heritage area.
Beginning at Katoomba Falls Reserve, we’ll make our way down the Furber steps into the Jamison Valley.

Katoomba Falls Reserve is located just before Scenic World at Katoomba. It takes between 2.5 - 3 hours if driving from Sydney. There are public bathrooms at the meeting location.

We’ll start the day meeting at Katoomba Falls Reserve at 8.30am.
After getting to know your fellow hikers and a trip briefing to go over gear and allocate items, you’ll head off, descending down into the Jamison Valley. We’ll enter the cool, lush rainforest with towering coachwood and sassafrass, and a chance to spot a lyrebird while we sit and have morning tea.
The track is a historic mining route with tell-tale embankments, so you can be sure that your guides will be sharing lots of fun facts!
After the stretch to camp, we’ll explore the beautiful rock formations of Ruined Castle (it actually looks like one!) which offers great views over valleys as far as Wentworth Falls and Katoomba.
At night, we’ll relax, watch the sun settle into the distance and enjoy the wilderness camp set-up.
On day two, rise to the smell of coffee and breakfast before packing up and heading back out the same trail. If you’re feeling tired or don’t wish to make the journey up the steps, you can catch the Scenic World Railway and meet the group at the top, but we’ll be challenging you to take those steps if you can.
This is a moderate trip - because... there are steps involved! What a bum burner they are. Ready?
This means women should feel confident to be on their feet hiking between 4-5 hours and some sexy legs post trip.
The trip is graded moderate due to uneven terrain, steep descents and rock scrambling up Ruin Castle. We take off our packs for any amazing view attempts. It’s important women understand that a good level of fitness and mobility is required to successfully complete this hike. Please note, parts of the track may be wet underfoot.
