  Three Sisters
by martin_nl

Only a couple of hours west from Sydney you will find Blue Mountains National Park. There are many tours you can take from the Sydney lasting from full day to multiple day trips. However you can perfectly visit the highlights on your own by train or car. To go by (rental-)car would be the most convenient, but I took the train to Katoomba and explored some of the National Park from there. Highlights include the Three Sisters at Echo Point and a good hike through the park such as the Ruined Castle Track.

If going by train some other train stations beside Katoomba you could hop off are Leura and Wentworth Falls.

Directions: 2 hours by train from Sydney Central.
