Public bus service

Is there a Govenment bus service that runs in Katoomba as I can't afford to take 4kiids on a sight seeing trolley bus. We just want to go to the 3 Sisters and Leura.

The website above is very handy, it brings up the 686 as the bus to catch.

$2.10 adult fare.

As for Leura, it's the next station back from Katoomba. Just walk downhill from Leura station to the village shops.

You could always do the cliff walking trail from Leura cascades two the 3 sisters - dunno on the capability of your kids though.

You can use your Opal card. And going on Sunday will be cheapest as it is capped at $2.50 pp. This would include the train and bus ride to get there and back to Sydney.

This is the timetable for the Blue Mountains public bus service.

You'd be looking at the Katoomba to Echo Point service and the Katoomba to Leura service to get to Leura. Once at Leura, just get the train back to Sydney from there.

The buses suggested above are good. Also getting from Katoomba to Leura you could catch the train, the station is right near the main street with shops etc in Leura
