WHAT IS THE ADVENTURE?

Our adventure will start at 8.45am from Figtree McDonalds, then commence with the winding roads of Mount Keira as we make our way towards the Settlers Mulgoa (via Picton) for morning tea (estimated arrival 10.15am). We will then leave the Settlers Mulgoa at 11.00am with a short drive to veer onto the Western Motorway (M4) then continue along the Great Western Hwy (A32) heading towards Blackheath. After crossing the railway at Blackheath turn onto Megalong Road and follow until you reach our destination (Megalong Valley Farm).

WHAT IS ON OFFER?

The last leg of this run will take you on the road from Blackheath into the Megalong Valley, which is one of the discovery trails on the greater Blue Mountains drive (part of the Greater Blue Mountains Heritage Area). We will spend the day absorbing the soothing tranquillity of this lovely valley with its lush, green paradise of forests and pastures whilst being surrounded by towering sandstone cliffs of the escarpment before we stop at the Megalong Valley Farm for a country style BBQ lunch.
