The Blue Mountains

Sitting some 90 minutes west of Sydney the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains attracts some 12 million visitors annually. The Greater Blue Mountains Area consists of seven national parks and conservation areas but the main drawcard is the Three Sisters - three pillars of weathered sandstone standing precariously and proud at Echo Point. There’s cafes and restaurants in Katoomba and Leura for lunch or afternoon tea and the highways that get you there from Sydney make it hard to believe this was once a day long journey on horseback and dirt roads.
