The Blue Mountains: Katoomba

July 03, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Katoomba is the touristy part of the Blue Mountains, known for the rock formation called "The Three Sisters" (see above). The trail I took was a 2 -2.5 hour hike, starting from Echo Point and ending at the Scenic Railway. It was full of vista points, small waterfalls, and lush greenery. 

The Blue Mountains was given its name due to the blue haze that hovers above it - do you see it?

Did I mention that this trail had 1,000 stairs? The Giant Stairway is a narrow path of stairs from the Three Sisters to the valley floor.

Cockatoos are common to see in Australia. I saw them constantly flying about the national park and I have spotted several in downtown Sydney as well.

See you again soon Blue Mountains!
