What you'll do
This experience was set up as one of the first of it's kind on Airbnb. You can now book this experience by following this link: https://www.airbnb.com.au/experiences/319948 This guided two-day hike is the perfect trip for adventurers looking to experience hiking and camping for the first time in the UNESCO world-heritage Blue Mountains National Park. Over the course of two days, you will explore epic waterfalls, hike down massive rock faces, witness the magic of the untouched Blue Gum Forest, and camp out in one of the most secluded wilderness areas in the Blue Mountains. This is the perfect getaway for those wanting to get out of Sydney, immerse in nature and challenge yourself in one of the most spectacular wilderness areas in Australia. Do not worry if you do not know how to set up a tent or cook in the bush, or if you are worried of Australian snakes or spiders. Our experienced guides are there, ready to show you everything you need to become an intrepid, eco-friendly explorer in the Australian outdoors. All you need is a good level of fitness (the hike is challenging with some steep ups and downs) and an attitude ready to embrace the unknown. All the camping equipment is provided free of charge, thanks to our generous supporters, and all the proceeds go to help kids in need!
Emu Trekkers is passionate about sharing its love and knowledge of the Blue Mountains and the environment for a good cause. All the guides give their time and expertise voluntarily to raise funds to help kids in need. They are a certified Eco-Pass tour operator in the Blue Mountains National Park and Australia’s first 100% not-for-profit, outdoor adventure tour operator run entirely by volunteers. This project has also been assisted by the New South Wales Government through its Environmental Trust.
