MAKE A BOOKING

Often regarded as the most impressive walking trail in the Blue Mountains, the Grand Canyon Walk will leave you in awe as you hike through lush rainforest with several creek crossings, waterfalls, huge sandstone walls and rock overhangs.

Constructed and opened to the public in 1907, the 6km long Grand Canyon walking track was the first of its kind and has since been challenged by thousands of hiking enthusiasts each year.

 

Our NSW Adventurous Woman, Deb Grivas will be hosting this fabulous walk as she has walked it several times, is an experienced bush walker, holds a senior first aid certificate and knows the track (and the Blue Mountains) like the back of her hand.  


Where to Meet:

Deb will meet you all at 10.00am near the toilets at the The Grand Canyon Loop carpark - the car park is fairly large. 
She will be wearing a bright orange Adventurous Women ® ™ Cap for easy identification. Her Mobile Number is 0409085463, should you need to make contact with her as there is mobile phone coverage there.

Lunch Afterwards for those wishing to stay on and celebrate their achievement:

Depending upon final numbers for the walk (and the weather forecast for the day), we have two alternatives, a picnic in the Blue Mountains, or lunch at the  "Victory Theatre” in Blackheath which is 5 mins drive away (It’s an old cinema that’s now a huge antique and vintage emporium with a cute cafe out the front). Prices are about $15-20 for lunch. (http://www.victorytheatre.com.au/)  

The Picnic or Cafe will be confirmed about a week prior to the walk and everyone will be notified via email of the final arrangements.

Lovely day out with a nice and friendly bunch of people. We were very lucky with the weather as the rain stayed away. Deb was a great host, took us at a nice pace, the homemade Anzac biscuits went down a treat! I’ll be back for the next walk.

We were first time hikers and so although we found the trek more challenging than expected, the beautiful lush screnery throughout culminating in a spectacular view from the top made it so well worth it! We absolutely loved it and would be glad to do more of this again. Also the ANZAC cookies Deb shared were a special, delicious treat.

My 16 year old daughter who has cerebral palsy (left hemiplegia) but is an athlete hence very fit, found the descent extremely challenging, not so much physically but mentally for she had to concentrate on her balance. But our guide Deb Grevias was absolutely amazing with her! Deb not only provided her with hiking sticks (she was only able to use one due to lack of control in her left hand) but supported, encouraged and motivated her throughout that she was able to complete the hike with a sense of accomplishment and pride! Deb also set the pace to Kailyn’s ability which was wonderful! For that I am thankful to the other hikers for their understanding and consideration.

I cannot thank Deb enough for her amazing support and empathy for Kailyn who trusted her implicitly! She is just awesome!
