Morning Walking Meetup KATOOMBA to BLACKHEATH
Saturday 26 September 2020, meet by 8.50am for 9.00am start
This last Saturday of the month (September) Morning Walk, we will meet by 8.50am for 9.00am start - this is for SATURDAY WALKERS ONLY Meet at the Station Bar near Katoomba Station.   Please do not block the access to the pedestrian crossing.

We will offer a direct route and slightly longer Technical route from Katoomba to Blackheath and finishing at Glenella Guesthouse. If you have done these routes before and are not doing the 5-Day walk, it would be much appreciated if you can help 'lead or sweep' a group from Katoomba to Blackheath. If you are interested, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to discuss further.
Walks will be approx 10kms and take about 3.30-4 hours including break at the Hydro Pavillon. Bring your Opal card in case you wish to catch the train at Medlow Bath.
NOTE to Saturday morning walk walkers,  RSVPs Essential.  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  if you intend joining this morning's walk from Katoomba. We will need to restrict the walker numbers as per COVID guidelines. Thank you for your understanding.

This Saturday walk is also the last day of the 5-Day Camino Training Walk. Normally we would be joining the walkers from Katoomba, however due to overwhelming response and the number of 5-Day walkers, the group will be too large for the COVID restrictions.  For this reason the 5-Day walkers will have a different start time and meeting point to the usual Saturday Morning Walk participants to save confusion.

NOTE: There won't be a formal Camino Meetup for September due to limited numbers allowed at Glenella Guesthouse.  The BYO picnic lunch at Glenella afterwards is NOW FULLY BOOKED.   Apologises for any inconvenience.   Please adhere to COVID social distancing and good hygiene practices.

* Please come prepared wearing suitable footwear and clothing, and just in case it rains, bring a rainjacket/poncho, also bring basic first aid, hand sanitiser and mask/s, ensure you have ample water, a hat, sunscreen and snacks.  There will be a half-way break at the Hydro Majestic, so bring some cash and your Opal card in case you wish to get the train from Medlow Bath.
