First up is the charming village of Leura. Leura is one of several villages in the Blue Mountains that perfectly capture the spirit of the region - fresh mountain air and stunning scenery. Its pretty, tree-lined main street is great for browsing through antique shops, art galleries and bookstores - before enjoying complimentary morning tea at one of the cafés.
** The Three Sisters
See the imposing Three Sisters, a great photo opportunity. According to Aboriginal legend, this unusual rock formation represents three sisters who were turned to stone. They stand an incredible 922, 918 and 906 metres respectively and are an amazing sight as the sun shifts to cast magnificent colours across the rock face.
** Scenic World
Located in southern Katoomba, Scenic World provides the ideal location to see and experience all that the Blue Mountains has to offer. It's like nowhere else on earth with its 360° views of this incredible landscape. Experience the world's steepest railway with included rides on the famous Scenic Railway and Scenic Cableway, where you'll be taken deep into and over the Blue Mountains - nothing short of thrilling!
** Blue Mountains
From Scenic World you'll be treated to a spectacular view. This mountainous World Heritage region covers an area of up to 10,000 square kilometres and features dramatic cliffs, deep canyons and lush vegetation, particularly eucalypt. When first discovered by the European visitors, the Blue Mountains had already been home to the Gundungurra people for what is believed to be millions of years and evidence of their culture and spirituality can be found throughout the region.
** Lunch in Wentworth Falls
The Conservation Hut Café is located at the Valley of the Waters in Wentworth Falls. Come and enjoy a hearty lunch on the large open verandah and marvel at the stunning views of the Jamison Valley or in winter inside around the cosy log fire.
