According to an Aboriginal dreamtime legend three beautiful giant sisters called Meehni, Wimlah and Gunnedoo once lived with the Katoomba tribe in the Jamieson Valley. They were in love with three brothers from the Nepean tribe but because of tribal laws they were forbidden to marry. The brave warrior brothers decided to take the maidens by force. A fierce tribal battle forced the witchdoctor of the Katoomba tribe to turn the sisters into stone. His plan was to restore them to life after the danger had passed, but he was killed in the battle. To this day nobody has been able to break the spell he put on the sisters and turn them back into their natural form.
