All the money raised goes to helping the Indigenous Literacy Foundation with their commitment to improve literacy among Indigenous children in Australia.
For this experience, we will meet at Central Station in Sydney and then journey by the scenic local train to the Blue Mountains (approximately 2 hours). We will then hike for 4-6 hours, starting with the historic path that Charles Darwin famously visited in 1836. You can set the pace. Arriving at Wentworth Falls, we will get our first glimpses of the Blue Mountains themselves, and look out over the ledge at the waterfalls below, with the famous blueness of the mountains in the distance. There will be plenty of chances for photos. From there, we will then descend the tallest outdoor staircase in Australia into the Jamison valley. We will have lunch in the valley of the mountains, surrounded by waterfalls. Hiking back up, there is often the opportunity to reward yourself with an ice cream at Conservation Hut, before we trek back through the historic neighbourhood of Wentworth Falls to the train station.
