Neighbourhoods
Wentworth Falls is one of the most beautiful towns within the Blue Mountains offering possibly the most spectacular bush walks and views. Originally called ‘Weatherboard’ after the ‘Weatherboard Hut’ built in 1814, one year later the town was named ‘Jamison’s Valley’ by Governor Macquarie. In July 1867 the historic first railway journey in the Blue Mountains left Penrith station and travelled through to Weatherboard Station where the train terminated. It wasn’t until 1879 that the name was changed to Wentworth Falls in honour of William Charles Wentworth, one of the three famous explorers. When travelling from Bullaburra to Wentworth Falls you ascend Boddington Hill.

Katoomba is the most visited town in all the Blue Mountains. Travelers love the steep railway and cable car at Scenic World, scenic views from Eaglehawk and Landslide Lookouts, and easy-access to the famous Three Sisters. But there’s more to Katoomba than just the obvious. Entertainment thrives at the Edge Cinema, home to one of the largest movie screens in the southern hemisphere. Visitors can catch a 40-documentary called “The Edge”, which offers a look at parts of the Blue Mountains that are mostly inaccessible. Wander to the quieter Yosemite Park and enjoy views of the Mini Ha-Ha Falls. History buffs shouldn’t miss the famous Explores Marked Tree. This well-protected tree has initials of explorers dating back to 1813. And the heaps of stones at nearby Pulpit Hill are said to mark the graves of long-gone local convicts.

There’s a reason why this town, located about 100 kilometers outside of Sydney, has been given the name “The Jewel in the Mountain’s Crown”. Its picturesque roadways are lined with brightly colored flowers and pristine gardens. Epic golf courses, like the one near Fairmont Resort, lend a wealthy air to the place, while access to dozens of scenic walks mean nature is never far away. Visitors can tour the well known Toy and Railway Museum inside the Leuralla Mansion, near the corner of Olympian Parade and Balmoral Road. High-end shopping, quaint cafes and local galleries line the halls of the up-scale Leura Mall. Travelers who prefer the outdoors can venture out to Cliff Drive, where bushwalks lead to the Pool of Siloam and views of Katoomba Falls. Sheltered picnic areas in Leura Cascades provide the best opportunity for relaxation and easy access to impressive Copelands and Flying Fox Lookouts, too.

In a country known for walkabouts and wandering it’s no surprise one of the biggest attractions is also one of the most mythical. According to local folklore, three sisters once fell in love with three men from a different tribe—a love that was forbidden. When the men tried to capture and marry the women war broke out and the ladies were turned to stone to protect them. Today, travelers who flock to Blue Mountain Park ascend the 800-plus stairs to the valley floor in order to catch a glimpse of the stones that tower hundreds of meters into the sky.

Anyone who’s seen a picture of the Blue Mountains should recognize Echo Point. Famous for its view of the Three Sisters, this sweeping viewpoint on the outskirts of Katoomba defines the Blue Mountains’ beauty. From this cliff top ledge, the jagged escarpment vertically drops towards the distant valley floor—a void where clouds can linger in the treetops nearly a thousand feet below. Take a deep breath and drink in the beauty of the Blue Mountains’ southern flank, and then consider walking the “Giant Stairway” that drops down into the valley. Over 800 stairs that are carved from the mountain descend 1,000 vertical feet, where numerous hiking trails weave their way along the forested valley floor. Climbing the walls of the “Ruined Castle” is a popular valley hike, and is a good way to escape the crowds that tend to gather at the viewpoint. Rather than hiking back up the stairs, take a ride on the “Scenic Railway” that leads back to the top of the cliff.
