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.

Cape To Cape 2012

April 2012 by Lesley W

Having now completed the Cape to Cape journey, a long-time dream of mine, gave me such appreciation for our beautiful landscape, rugged coastline and magnificent oceans that demand our respect. Being given the means and support to do this, at times, challenging walk by Adventurous Women to fulfill this rewarding experience makes me feel so privileged. Sharing the week with such a lovely like-minded group of women up for the challenge was uplifting as we endeavoured, no matter our age, to complete this renowned track.
