Blue Mountains 2012

Being based in Sydney gives you the opportunity to jump on the train at Sydney Central and head across to the Blue Mountains – but definitely set off early so you can make the most of it in the day. (Not much point staying overnight, in all honestly.)

On the train to Katoomba. Sun is shining and the weather is sweet, yeah!

Stunning scenery on the way to the Blue Mountains is a prelude to the wondrous sights that await at my destination.

The Blue Mountains are both a National Park and a UNESCO World Heritage Area. Lots of Sydneysiders head there on the weekends, so if you’re a tourist its best to visit on a weekday as it’ll be a lot quieter. And it doesn’t have to be an expensive day trip if you plan it well. No need to hire a car or pay for taxis when you can take buses and walk.

Skyway Station, Blue Mountains
Yep, it’s time to take the scary cablecar (is there any other kind?) from the Skyway Station.
On the plus side, it will give me a stunning view of the mountains I came to see.

Entrance to the Giant Stairway. It’s a PUNISHING climb down the mountain… and then even WORSE when you have to walk back up it!
