|The Blue Haze the area is known for|
I took a train from Sydney to Katoomba, the largest city in the area, taking only 2 hours. It was nice to sit back, relax and watch the scenery change from large, bustling metropolis to virtually untouched landscape in the Blue Mountains National Park. It was June when I visited, and although the weather in Sydney had been quite nice, it was considerably cooler by the time I got to Katoomba, making me grateful for the jumper I had brought with me. The main reason for my trip was to get a first hand look at the biggest drawcard of the area - The Three Sisters.

If you're thinking about visiting and looking for a place to stay, we have a section dedicated to this region on the Blue Mountains Australia Hotels page on our website. From this page, you can also link to Day Trips & Excursions to the Blue Mountains. Although Lilianfels is probably the most well known accommodation, there are plenty of other options to choose from.
My trip back to Sydney was uneventful, which I guess isn't all bad. I have to admit, I did smile smugly as we got closer to the city centre and saw the gridlocked traffic as we glided by on the train. Sometimes public transport really is a great option. Stay tuned for my next Australian adventure....
