Black Range Campsite on the Six Foot Track

Black Range Campsite is on the Six Foot Track, 10km from the Jenolan Caves. If you were to hike the Six Foot Track west from the Explorers Tree, Katoomba towards the Jenolan Caves over three days (the most popular Six Foot Track itinerary), you'd spend your second night at Black Range Campsite. At 1200m, it's also the highest point on the Six Foot Track.

The campsite is a flat, grassy field, surrounded by gumtrees, with no defined tent sites. It is large, with space for 30+ tents. Black Range Campsite is also 4x4 accessible, but vehicles must park by the campsite entrance.
