Blue Mountains
The Blue Mountains is a  mountain region located just west of Sydney. The name refers to the bluish color impression when viewed from afar.
High ridges and deep gorges provide for spectacular panoramas.
 
The Gundungurra had lived in the area for millennia before the europeans came in the 19th century and started mining for coal.
 
The vincinity to Sydney makes the area very popular by locals and visiting tourists.
The Three Sisters are its hallmark, but there are other great sights and wide panoramas like Sublime Lookout point.
 
In Katoomba you can ride the Katoomba Scenic Railway and the Scenic Skyway.
 
Nice waterfalls are the Bridal Veil Falls and the multi-staged Wentworth Falls.
 
We visited the Blue Mountains in July 1999, entering from the north via Wisemans Ferry and exiting at the east near Sydney.
