Katoomba is a beautiful, historic town set on the edge of the Blue Mountains. To reach Katoomba, take a short drive out of Sydney, set 90 minutes from the CBD. The town provides several cosy accommodation options with heritage guesthouses along with scenic walks departing from the centre. Filled with natural wonders, let the fresh mountain air welcome you with the sweeping views surrounding.
Katoomba is the perfect base for visiting Echo Point, where you’ll be able to indulge in views of the Three Sisters. It is also the take-off point for the Scenic Railway. The Scenic Railway will lead you through the Blue Mountains with views of Orphan Rock and Jamison Valley. It is the steepest railway incline in the world and connects directly to the Scenic Cableway, which passes the Three Sisters and Mt Solitary.
