Hard track
Along rough bushtracks this track goes from Medlow Bath Railway Station to the cliffs and then under their eaves to a large amphitheatre- The Colloseum. Great views of the Megalong Valley and a fantastic spot to break are the important features of this walk. Let us begin by acknowledging the Dharug & Gundungurra people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
