Just like Braidwood the Blue Mountains and Hawksberry area need you to go back and visit.
We visited Katoomba to catch up with Anon’s brother who lives there but I thought it would be a great Be a Tourist at Home Post. It’s not an area I have ever spent much in. Sunday drives when a child come to mind…but then it was very fashionable to be unimpressed.
I got the lads up very early to catch the light on the Three Sisters and avoid the crush. It was my favorite part of the trip…apart from the the Blue Mountains Elvis Festival…but more about that later!
You can still buy Paragon chocolates but not in the gorgeous old tea room, that sits empty with a for lease sign in the window.
The Blue Mountains is a world heritage wilderness that begins 60km west of . Spending a day visiting the mountains makes a great addition to a Sydney itinerary if you are an overseas visitor and nothing if you live here.
There are many reasons why you should go but for starters: The area is home to 400 different species of animals, 40 of them rare or threatened The vast wilderness covers over 11,400 km² and standing above it looking down is mind blowing
The mountains are not mountains but rather a valley that was formed over 50 million years ago.
The mountains are the perfect distance from Sydney for a day trip, which will give you a taste of the region but a full weekend is the ideal amount of time to experience the area. Just Go…..
