Blue Mountains and Three Sisters

From Featherdale Wildlife Park, we headed to the Blue Mountains National Park, a mountain range area in New South Wales, Australia. It is about 70 miles west of Sydney.

The most famous site was, of course, the Three Sisters. These rock towers were formed by natural erosion of sandstone. They have their names (from left to right: Meehni, Wimlah, and Gunnedoo) and their legends. We were told that it was a story of three sisters who were turned to stone by someone who died in the fighting and no one could reverse the spell.

On that day around the lookout, it was very windy and the Blue Mountains did not look really blue like their names. Anyway, we were having so much fun together.

We decided to buy Scenic World’s tickets. With these tickets, we have 4 ways to explore the Blue Mountains: Sky Way, Rail Way, Walk Way, and Cable Way.

The Sky Way allowed us to see the waterfall and the mountains across the gorge. I was really excited with the transparent glass floor of the Sky Way.

There was a sign near the Rail Way telling us that the railway we were about to ride was the steepest incline railway in the world! It did not scare me much, but I scream so loud along the way down..haha

I did not enjoy the Walk Way much because it was dark and it rained. For the Cable Way, it was similar with Sky Way which allowed us to see the panoramic views of the mountains.

All in all, the views there were spectacular. If you plan to visit Sydney, I recommend you to include Blue Mountains in your itinerary. It is very easy to find the tours to go there, but I’m sure it would be more expensive than going there by yourself. This place can easily accessed by public transportation. I do recommend you to spend a day there and check the weather forecast first!
