Walking the Six Foot Track
The Six Foot Track wends its way through Megalong Valley, as well as through the area's state forests and national parks. People generally take three days to tackle the 45-kilometre Six Foot Track, but you can opt for shorter walks on a daytrip or an overnight camping excursion.
