TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Blue Katoomba
A very nice 1920's hotel within walking distance of train station, shopping and blue mountains views and falls. Super nice people who run the hotel. The just took over the place so some restoration is ongoing. Rooms are clean but could use some attention at the ceiling :)
Don't forget to get some cappuccino at the cafe downstairs and admire the pictures on the wall.

... when one needs to.
I had such an amazing weekend letting go, enjoying the little things and most importantly seeing from my heart. I was able to experience breath taking moments and was pleased to share it with who I did. From day one Sarah and I just clicked.

Our first stop in Blackheath town was an antique shop in a converted theatre where we browsed through the hundreds of antiques. As the heavens opened we made our way to The Grand Canyon in Blackheath. The Canyon ...
... the beach. This way we're covered!
We plan on spending the day tomorrow driving through the mountains on a narrow road on the way to Maitland, near Newcastle. That's where our friend Ian is living now. He used to live in Madison and is back to safe territory. We'll stay with him and his sister and her family. He plans on showing us around the area. It should be a lot of fun seeing Ian again and having a local guide.
... cliff tops, we saw some brilliant views and got very sweaty.
After managing to find our way back to the road we hopped back on the bus service and headed for scenic world. It was ironically not very scenic, as the place was mobbed because of Chinese New Year and we had to fight our way through big crowds to experience the world's steepest railway and the cable car return up from it.
We had lunch in the forest which was a nice tranquil experience. After, we headed for Leura ...
