The Blue Mountains offer a unique opportunity to explore Australia’s natural beauty and historic past without having to travel the distance. Spend a day visiting the park and its attractions, another wandering the streets of Katoomba and Leura and round out the stay with a bit of adventure.
Pack a lunch and start the day with an easy hike from Leura Cascades to Bridal Veil Falls, where stunning views of natural waterfalls provide a beautiful backdrop for a relaxing picnic. Next, embark on the more challenging Echo Point Trail, where a Giant Stairway leads to the valley where Three Sisters stands.
Start your day in Leura, a town nicknamed “The Jewel of the Mountain’s Crown”. Enjoy breakfast at one of Leura Mall’s cafes, then wander through the high-end shops and local galleries that line its halls. Next, head into town and explore the private gardens that line this historic town’s idyllic streets and stop by the Toy and Railway Museum.
