THE BLUE MOUNTAINS, NEW SOUTH WALES

Just an hour outside of Sydney, we visited the Three Sisters; a three peak rock formation listed as the most spectacular sight in the area.

Legend has it that three sisters were turned to stone by a witchdoctor protecting them from a tribal war, but the witchdoctor himself was killed before he could undo the spell. We can think of worse places to be stuck for eternity – the view is spectacular! There’s miles of sandstone cliffs and eucalyptus trees filling the valleys, creating the ‘blue haze’ that the mountains are famous for.

Although we didn’t get to try it, we’d have loved a go on the Scenic World cable car followed by a night camping in one of the nearby sites.
