This campsite is located in Six Foot Track

The Six Foot Track was established in the late 1880s as a bridle trail to convey tourists to Jenolan Caves from Katoomba. Today, it’s a popular bushwalking track – walkers generally take 2–3 days to complete the 45 km route, beginning at the Explorers Tree, 2.5 km west of Katoomba, and ending at Jenolan Caves House. Once a year it hosts the Six Foot Track Marathon to raise money for the Rural Fire Service and the Six Foot Track Heritage Trust.
