Blue Mountains trip


WHEN?
Saturday, 27th May! (Raindate = Sunday, 28th May). That’s on the weekend of week 11.

HOW DO WE GET THERE?
Take a cityrail train! We will meet at the waiting area of central station (at the Hungry Jack’s on level 2) at 7:00 am. The train will leave at 7:18am and arrive at Katoomba station at 9:21am. We will also take the train back to Sydney in the afternoon, probably around sunset.

WHAT WILL WE DO THERE?
Hop on the Scenic Cableway & Railway and descend 545 metres into the Jurassic Rainforest. Experience the sights and sounds of the local flora and fauna while bushwalking. See the magnificent Three Sisters!

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The initial price was $44 per person, but Unimates members only need to pay $30 per person. This includes:
– $14 return-ticket from Central Station to Katoomba
– $30 for the trolley car and rides on railway and cableway
Please note: Lunch is excluded!!!

WHAT ABOUT FOOD?
We will have lunch at Echo Point. You can also get food along theway at some of the stops, ie. Scenic World (where the cableway/railway is).

THINGS TO NOTE:
– Consider your level of fitness.
– Always carry water!
– Wear sturdy shoes and WARM comfortable clothes. (It will probably be on the chilly side)
