An Easy Guide to a Blue Mountains Day Trip
Perfect for families, solo travellers, young people and old, the Blue Mountains day trip is easily accessible to all. We’ve put together this guide to the Blue Mountains Day Trip to help you make the most of your time in one of NSW’s most loved destinations.
Take the train from Bondi Junction to Central Station and then change trains for Katoomba. The trip is relaxing, will take approximately 2 hours end to end, and gives you the chance to see the beautiful countryside along the way.
WHAT TO DO:
Once you’ve arrived in Katoomba, we suggest you take The Blue Mountains Explorer Bus which picks up from the Katoomba train station. The hop-on hop-off bus is the most convenient way to travel to all the great destinations the Blue Mountains has to offer. They have a number of passes available to suit the needs and budget for you and your family. We’ve selected our top three destinations for The Blue Mountains Day Trip:
Visit Scenic World:
Scenic World boasts two of The Blue Mountains major tourist attractions. The Scenic Railway is the steepest passenger railway in the world. This adventure has visitors seated on a steep incline, looking up through the glass roof, alongside cliff-side tunnels and through 310 metres of the Jamison Valley rainforest. The Scenic Skyway, suspended 270 metres above the rainforest canopy gives visitors sweeping 360º degree views of the Blue Mountain ranges, the Three Sisters, Katoomba Falls and the Jamison Valley. Not to be missed on a Blue Mountains Day Trip, Scenic World is great for visitors of all ages and the kids will just love it.
The Three Sisters: Echo Point
The Three sisters is a rock formation which stands out against the backdrop of the magnificent blue mountains ranges. Over 3 000 feet (914.4 metres) above sea level, the Three Sisters are a legend of the Aboriginal dreamtime. Echo Point offers uninterrupted views and can be accessed from a cliff-top walkway and takes about 40 minutes. A not to be missed site for a Blue Mountains Day Trip, the Three Sisters really are something unique to the Australian landscape.
The town of Leura has undergone a tremendous transformation over the years and has become a favourite stop for travellers on a Blue Mountains Day Trip. The Leura mall is an open walkway that features boutique cafes, shops, galleries and more. The candy store is an institution that should not be missed, especially for families. Take in lunch, buy a box of homemade chocolates, withdraw money from your bank’s ATM or settle with a Devonshire tea for a couple hours and enjoy the afternoon away.
Once you’re done, hop back on the Blue Mountains Explorer Bus to Katoomba station and make your way back to Bondi the same way you came. Depending on your group, you may have time to undertake more activities during your Blue Mountains Day Trip.
