I’ll be staying at Glenella and attempting the 5 day walk from Penrith to Blackheath from 22 to 27 November. Sadly I know lots of our interstate friends had to cancel, but still hoping to meet up with some of you. My fitness is currently terrible but I’m making a valiant attempt to improve.

Hi Kanga, hope you enjoy the walk, it’s a beautiful part of the world. Walking from Penrith to Blackheath I imagine you’ll be walking uphill most of the way. As my fitness is terrible too, I was wondering is the opposite direction Blackheath to Penrith just as popular?

We shan't be on the walk, but we'll be up there tonight for the gathering. Enjoy the walk. Hope to meet you soon.

This walk is organised by the Blue Mountains Camino Supporters group, with a specific date, and maps, but I don't see why you could not walk it in the other direction any time.

As @Kanga notes; you could walk in opposite direction if you wanted to find your way down .. but Margaret & Rowan have organised trips including maps and accommodation sorted in the direction which is uphill to Glenella (I believe ).
There is a thread (attached below ) which includes an interview about it with them.
Very inspiring

Well today we have been swimming! Rowan has organised a 3 day walk across the western plains of Sydney before the 5 day climb up to Blackheath. The first day was cloudy but pretty much dry until the end but today was “a really interesting experience”. I have swamp feet, and very wet clothes! I’m a tagger-along, not totally committed and tomorrow (when more rain is forecast) sadly 😢 I have to take the car up to Glenella - not that I am welching out or anything…
