Anyone planning a trip to the Blue Mountains (Katoomba etc) should reconsider their plans in the light of serious bushfires around Springwood and Lithgow
While Katoomba is currently in no danger (no fires there) tourists should stay off the roads to and through the mountains. The RFS has asked that ALL non-essential vehicles stay away. Sightseers are NOT welcome.
