Three Sisters

The Three Sisters is a peculiar rock formation in the Blue Mountains. The Three Sisters come from an Aboriginal Dreaming story. The Three Sisters are named Meehni, Wihmlah and Gunnedoo and they were part of the Katoomba community. The sisters fell in love with three brothers from another community. The brothers tried to steal the sisters, but a battle broke out. Due to the battle, a Katoomba elder put a spell on the sisters and turned them into stone. Now the Three Sisters are an iconic landmark in the Blue Mountains. Each stone is over 900 metres tall.
