Six Foot Track

By the late 1800s, the people of New South Wales had heard about incredible caves found in the western Blue Mountains that were difficult to get to. The creation of the Six Foot Track in 1884 made the Jenolan Caves more accessible, with a six-foot-wide track for walkers and horseriders. You can still follow the original 42‑kilometre route over three days. Starting in Katoomba, the track heads through the Nellies Glen rainforest and Megalong Valley with its historic sites. Crossing the Cox River over a suspension bridge, it scales the Black Range before reaching the caves. There is a range of campsites to choose from en route.
