Description:
Medlow Bath is a station along the Blue Mountains Train Line between Katoomba and Blackheath. It serves the legendary hotel Hydro Majestic which has been there since 1904. In the early days of the hotel, walking tracks and various facilities have been put in the nearby bushes to attract tourists but was later abandoned, and the area has now turned into a somewhat interesting place to explore around.

We will have excellent view over Megalong Valley, some pretty rock formation and a few historical remnants.

There are also a few Geocache (a real world treasure hunt game) around which I'm aiming to find. If you are interested in the game, check out their website:www.geocaching.com
I will also bring a topographic map and teach how to read the map.

The walk is mostly on track with mild gradient. However some part of the track can be muddy, overgrown and hard to follow. The total walking distance will be around 10km, but depends on the way we take on the day.

The trip is accessible by public transport. More details will be sent out once you sign up.
