Welcome to Blue Mountains

Blue Mountains

Blue Mountains National Park is a World Heritage area and is one of the best and most popular National Park in Australia.  The views are breathtaking and there are many trekking trails and look out points to choose from.  There are three distinctive rocks and these are called The Three Sisters.  They are a rock formation, believed to be three sisters turned into stone after they fell in love with three men from a neighbouring tribe. When they were forbidden to marry the men a battle broke out, the elder turned them into the rocks to protect them. This is claimed to be an Aboriginal legend. If you are not feeling energetic you could take the cable car or the train to get around the Blue Mountains.  It is full of wildlife so keep an eye out so all types of animals from birds to lizards. It is just two hours from Sydney and definitely worth the day trip.  You can also stay at one of the many hotels the area has to offer or if you are feeling adventurous you could always camp.  You can get there by either car or train.
