Blue Mountains, NSW.
From there we took the train going to Katoomba Station.(Buti walang sumpong si Marshall kasi maaga nagising, hehe)Luckily, it only took about 2 hours for us to reach there.From Katoomba Station, we rode a bus about 15-20mins away from our destination. Hurray!with Tito Wiljay, Tita Malou, and Tita Blanche
Although there was no snow, it was still cold since the temperature is 3 degrees.
It’s called Blue mountains because basically, it looks blue. 🙂
They are clad in vast forests of eucalypts (commonly called gum trees), which in the hot sun discharge a fine mist of eucalyptus oil from their leaves. The mist refracts light, which makes the haze look blue at a distance.– http://www.sydney.visitorsbureau.com.au/regions/blue-mountains.html
We walked and took photos around the area for about 20 minutes. There’s no entrance fee, by the way.
The 3 big stones you can see in the photo are called “The Three Sisters”. Legend says that these were actually 3 ladies who fell in love with 3 men but the tribal law forbids them to marry. A spell cast upon them and turn them into rocks. See story here.
After some time, we went to Scenic World which is just a few minutes away from the Blue Mountains.This time, we paid for ticket that includes unlimited rides to Scenic Railway, Cableway, Skyway, and Walkway. 39aud for each adult and $21aud for children aged 4-13. Yey! Marshall is still free since he’s just 2 1/2 years old. Check out price here.
Here’s a short clip of our cableway and railway experience.
