Yesterday I went to Blue Mountains with my husband and a friend who visited us from Sweden. It was fantastic!
We started in the morning, 2 hours train ride from the city, we arrived in Katoomba train station around 10am. We took a bus ride for another 15 minutes to Echo Point. We joined the rest of the people admiring the view! Shortly after that we visited an information center, had our coffee with some nice pastries and we set to go.
The reason they name it Blue mountains it is because of the evaporation of the oil of the Eucalyptus trees that turn to blue haze/ mist.
Pass the Three Sisters we continued walking down the mountain, quite steep, and started our trek from there. We walked through the forrest. It was such a pleasant walk.. There were many different kind of walks/ treks. You can basically start from many different points. The weather was on our side, it was mostly sunny but breezy.
We walked all the way down and went up back with a cable car. You can basically use a train, like in the picture below, a cable car or a sky train, to go from one hill to the other.

What a view!
