We decided to make our first stop at the most famous view point in Blue Mountains. This is called Echo Point and is located in a small town called Katoomba. Echo Point has several sensational viewing platforms that gives great view of Jameson Valley and the impressive rock formation Three Sisters. We had high expectations coming there, only to find that we couldn't see anything because of the mistL We decided to go to more viewing points hoping to see more and to come back to Echo Point the next day
When we woke up the sun was shining, birds were singing and heavy machines were digging up the road…! That ment we were stuck at Hargreaves lookout for some time. We went to the view point and now we could actually see the mountains. The view was amazing! After taking many pictures we decided to eat breakfast while waiting for the roadwork to finish. Next stop was Mt Blackheath Lookout before heading back to Echo Point. Since the weather conditions were different from yesterday we could see the view that made Echo Point famous. We wanted to take a bushwalk and headed to the information center. We got the directions for a 2- 3 hours walk through the rainforest, down the giant stairway, around the Three Sisters, ending up at an old coal mine. The giant stairway has 900 steps of which most are carved out of the mountain. When we got to the end of our walk we went with Scenic Cableway, which is a cable car taking us up from Jameson Valley to Scenic World. From Scenic World we went with Scenic Skyway, which is a glass- floored cable car floating out across the valley. Another half hour of bushwalking and we were back at Echo Point.
