The Blue Mountains has plenty of things to do. Whether you’re visiting for a day or a couple of days you’ll have waterfalls to see, a chance to explore Jamison Valley, see rock formations, and so much more.

Scenic World

Scenic World is a great place to visit when in the Blue Mountains. Scenic World consists of three rides, the Scenic Railway, the Scenic Cableway, and the Scenic Skyway. There is also a Scenic Walkway which allows you to walk along a 20 minute long boardwalk through Jamison Valley.

Three Sisters

The Three Sisters is one of the main highlights of the Blue Mountains. You can view the rock formation from Echo Point lookout which also provides views of Jamison Valley.

The Three Sisters is an Aboriginal Dreaming story about Meehni, Wimlah, and Gunnedoo who were three sisters, part of the Katoomba tribe. The sisters fell in love with three Nepean tribe boys who were brothers.

Due to tribal laws the sisters and brothers couldn’t marry, which caused the boys to try to capture the sisters. The boys’ attempt caused a battle between the tribes, which caused a Katoomba elder to place a spell on the sisters which turned them into sandstones.

The Blue Mountain also has a lot of different walking trails to do. You can select a couple to do during your visit or do one and spend the rest of the time seeing other attractions up in the mountains.
