The Blue Mountains Camino 5-Day Walk is a wonderful opportunity to experience the Camino spirit right here in Australia. If you have walked a Camino and wish to rekindle the pleasures - and pain - of long distance walking with like-minded pilgrims, this walk is for you. If you have never walked a Camino, but aspire to one day, this walk is the perfect opportunity to learn from others and experience a little of the 'Camino' spirit right here in Australia.
Please be aware this is not a guided walk but rather a practice walk with a group of like-minded Camino pilgrims travelling up the Blue Mountains. You will be provided with detailed maps and an information guide.
Bookings open Monday 23 January 2023 at 6pm (AEST).
