The Blue Mountains is a must come and see when visiting Sydney. It’s one of the places renowned for It’s natural beauty and immaculate landscapes not to mention all the spectacular bush walking tracks – it is one of the top things to do when you visit Sydney. The scenery is breathtaking and can only be appreciated by cruising through the area.

Day 1

Sydney to Blue Mountains:

Stay the night in Blue Mountains. If you arrive during the day then there is plenty of time for stopping over at Echo Point (the lookout point for the iconic three sisters) and explore the Katoomba town centre where you will find an abundance of restaurants and cafes or maybe you want to visit Wentworth and discover spectacular waterfalls and magnificent views. If you are arriving late in the evening then don’t worry you will still have time to do these things on Day two and Day three. Read more

Things to bring:
Picnic or snacks
Sunscreen
camera and spare film

Day 2

Echo Pont lookout and Scenic World:

We start day 2 with some breathtaking scenery. If you love your photography and want to capture some stunning photos, set out early (preferable at sunset at this magnificent lookout called Echo point. Echo Point is one of the best and most famous lookout point for viewing the incredible vastness and beauty of the Blue Mountains. Here you will get incredible views of the iconic Three Sisters and the breathtaking valley of the Blue Mountains.

Go grab yourself a coffee and a bite to eat at Katoomba (the most visited town in the Blue Mountains)

After that head on down to Scenic World for (blue Mountain’s premier tourist attraction) Scenic World is open from 9am till 5pm. I would say you need at least a couple of hours here. We have a full detailed report about Scenic World, you can read it here.

Day 3

Wentworth Falls then back to Sydney:

Okay so today is the last day as we pack and check out of our hotel in the morning. We have a few hours to spare before we head back to Sydney.
Our next stop is Wentworth Falls Lake, perfect for a picnic or stroll by the lake. It’s just so serene and beautiful here. There is plenty of parking and a lovely lake. You will see plenty of bird life here and as you wonder the park you will see some nice sandstone creations that form the Wentworth Falls Lake sculptures.

Our next stop is Wentworth Falls, an incredible place and one of the most beautiful towns in Blue Mountains, with possibly the best bush walks and views. I would suggest exploring some of the many walks here, you’ll certainly be glad you did. Unfortunately it wasn’t possible for us to do much of the walking tracks firstly because we had small children and secondly it was our last day and the kids were exhausted from the trip.
However i do talk about them in my other article and this is something I definitely want to do next time maybe without the kids or when they are a bit older. Read the article here.

Things to bring:
Jumpers
umbrella
Camera
water
snacks
backpack (you don’t want to be carrying anything)
