Where you'll be

For this experience, we'll 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. Arriving at Wentworth Falls, we will then descend the tallest outdoor staircase in Australia into the valley of the mountains, before heading back up to catch the train back to Sydney. ​
