This hike is organised and guided by Women Want Adventure.

You will be met by your guide at the Conservation Hut at 9.00am and acquainted with your fellow women walkers.

From here, the trail passes a level path past Jamison and Wentworth lookouts before descending around 200 steps to the cliff-edge at Fletchers lookout. As we descend, look up at the 100m waterfall beside us, where Jamison Creek cascades into a shallow pool to one side and the magnificent Jamison Valley opens out on the other.

This location is like a tropical lagoon. It s a perfect spot to relax in the moist cool air on a warm day and stop for morning tea.

After our break, it s onto exploring the base of the valley on the National Pass trail before heading back up the steps at Empress Falls to the Conservation Hut for a final cuppa or lunch with the group.
