8th – 10th February 2018
Visited the Blue Mountains at Katoomba to show my brother around – didn’t take the camper but stayed at a motel near Echo Point.
Wandered down to Echo Point to look at the view and The Three Sisters. When you look down the valley you can understand why the early settlers took decades to find a way through the mountains (they didn’t think to ask the Aborigines who crossed the mountains all the time).
Climbed down the Great Staircase only as far as the cave on the first sister.
Spent the morning at Scenic World. Very sophisticated these days, when I first visited it was, to say the least, very basic but in those days it was great fun. The boardwalk in the rainforest is very enjoyable but the queues for the rides are not fun.
Away from the hustle of Scenic World a walk down the Leura Cascades, much quieter and relaxing.
Quick visit for their Devonshire Teas and a look at the teapots.
