Steep steps & blood suckers.

A travel blog entry by toddlerontour


... had reached the bottom of the railway (steepest in the world by the way) I was so drenched in sweat having carried Chloe on my back the whole way that Rachel was considering catching a different train up to the top. We boarded the train and were whisked away at pace and a 52 degree incline with the triumphant sound of Indiana Jones music in the background. Upon reaching the top we decided a coffee/milkshake stop was in order but a quick look round the ...

Walking my legs off and loving every second!

We then saw the old coal mine entrance and ventilation shaft before queueing for the railway up. It has a 52 degree incline so the roof was glass giving you a great view of the valley and 3 ...

Three sisters

A travel blog entry by julesyscott


... eucalyptus oil suspended in the atmosphere. We then took a short walk to the first of the three sisters but were unable to go any further due to a landslide on the Giant's staircase. We drove around the rim of the plateau and found a nice spot for a yummy picnic lunch. A short walk led us to part of the Leura Falls, in the Katoomba region, where we all went climbing on rocks and dipping our feet into the water in this glorious ...
