Don’t be fooled by the easygoing locals—like laughing kookaburras and crimson rosella birds—your trip will be all uphill from here. But in a good way! Get behind the wheel of a Blue Mountains car hire (from Wotif!) and load the boot with all your climbing gear. Many travellers set up a home base in the village of Katoomba, which is located just north of the Jamison Valley and the famous Three Sisters (we’re talking about the massive rock formation, not Marcia, Jan and Cindy Brady). From the Echo Point Lookout in Katoomba, you can easily see these statuesque siblings and plot your walk down the historic Giant Stairway—the name is no joke, this scenic pathway is stacked with over 800 steps!
Next up, give your legs a rest and learn about the local history at the Waradah Aboriginal Centre in downtown Katoomba, or cool off in the Wentworth Falls east of town. Not all of Wotif’s holidays include outdoor showers, but your Blue Mountains package might! If you prefer a luxurious massage to a cool mist, you’ll be happy to hear that the Blue Mountains aren’t all rugged—in fact, the mountain range is home to some award-winning spas in a stellar setting.
You could remember your trip with a jar of claystone crumbles from the side of Wentworth Falls…or you could go shopping! Katoomba’s historic roots are pretty strong, which makes for a fab antiques and vintage boutiques scene. If you want to dress your flat too, check out the art galleries in Leura. Hey, you’re about to score some sweet Blue Mountains package deals, so go ahead and splurge!
Climbing a mountain can work up an appetite, and you’ll be tackling a few. That means it’s time to stuff your face. Fortunately, you can refuel on some delicious modern Aussie cuisine in Katoomba, Leura and Wentworth Falls. If pizza and global fusion are your flavours of choice, they’ve got that too!
Likewise, that fabulous threesome is your go-to for nightlife venues against the backdrop of the Blue Mountains. If you’re feeling subversive, check out the Church Bar in Windsor—it’s a rowdy bar, in an old church building and it’s a traveller fave. If you really want to crank up the volume, though, remember, you’re only an hour from Sydney.
Set your sights holiday sights high and save on your pick of airfares and accommodation with Wotif. We’ve got Blue Mountains holiday packages that’ll make you feel like you’re on top of the world…because you will be!
