Today it has been exactly one year since my trip and excursion to Blue Mountains while I was in Australia. As I cannot wait for my return to Oz this Spring, I have been looking through my pictures and videos and decided to share them with you. Let’s bring back these memories!
(Here you should also watch my trip to Macadamia Farm)
The Blue Mountains is a mountainous region and a mountain range located in New South Wales, Australia. Located about 50 kilometers west from the city.
The name comes from the natural blue haze created by vast eucalyptus forests in this World Heritage area. Tiny droplets of oil released from the trees mix with water vapor and sunlight to produce the distinctive color.
It’s just two hours by train from Sydney’s Central Station to Katoomba, where you’ll find buses to some of the leading attractions. You can marvel at this wilderness region from cliff top lookouts. Explore waterfalls, valleys or even discover limestone crystals and underground rivers deep inside the Jenolan Caves (I will post info about them in next chapter! 🙂 ) There are numerous exhilarating activities on offer in the mountains, from rock climbing and abseiling to guided walks.
I was there exactly one year ago when in Australia was Summer time so be careful and drink plenty of water, cover your head with hat and use sunblock if you plan to visit this region soon.
My trip was divided into 2 days. First day I was exploring Jenolan Caves (tbc) and the following day I was climbing and hiking within the mountains.
On the video above you can see Katoomba, The Three Sisters, amazing lookouts and forest from day #2.
Great adventure and break from the beach and sand that are inherent in Sydney 😉
