You dont need to book a tour to take you here, its a lot cheaper if you take the train from Sydney, just $15 with an opal card that you have to use. Then we used the hop on bus, but if we did it again we wouldnt use the bus. When you get off at the stops, the signeage... More

9 November I did this tour with my brother from Holland. We booked this trip because I did this trip with a different company a few years ago and that was in combination with a silly zoo, holding koalas and crocodiles and feed kangaroos is not my thing. so this was cheap and no silly zoo. what a big difference...

We visited while on a private tour with Peter Bailey with a limited amount of time. Our first impression was that it is very similar to the US Grand Canyon but with trees! With thousands of eucalyptus trees in fact! We were amazed at the views and so happy that we took the time and spent the effort to go... More

Everyone talked about the blue mountains but I wasnt expecting it to be as exciting and beautiful and built up. I thought about camping there but there are plenty of hotels and air bnbs around. You might want to get a local to show you around to the spots that are not so touristy. Check out my youtube thedannyblackvlog for... More

A simply scenic location that has been packaged beautifully for the tourists..Lovely view of the epic location named as the " three sisters" three mountain tops formed in the shape of human beings, connected to the aboriginal history. The area can be explored in the sky train, the train or in the cable car, what ever you use it is... More

I went here with a group of friends in March, we stopped by a few of the viewing points. We happened to be there on a sunny day so the views were spectacular, we arrived quite early so there weren't a lot of people at each viewing point. Maybe 20 people in total (we were a group of 8). We... More

Quite a long drive from Sydney CBD. You can also take train. Very nice view of the Three sisters and the water fall. Souvenir shops and cafes at Katoomba and the Scenic. But if you do not like nature and sight seeing, you can skip this attraction in your list.
