The Blue Mountains

After leaving Newcastle we headed straight to the Blue Mountains.  We wanted to visit the area before it got too cold and I think we made it just in time.  We had warm sunny days and cold nights.  It dropped down to about 3 degrees on our first night, thank goodness for the air-conditioning heating .

The views and the scenery of the Blue Mountains are spectacular, at every vantage point and lookout we were stuck for the right words, all we could say was “Wow – look at that”.

I guess this is what the locals get up to on their days of.

What some people do to get a better view.

A lot of the vantage points to require some degree of climbing

I lost count of the steps.

The Blue Mountains is definitely worth a visit, but don’t stay too long or you will run out of money real quick.  We paid the record price of $59.00 a night for a powered caravan site and the food is a little pricey as well, tomatoes $9.59 per kg.

    Great place the Blue Mountains !
    Spent so many nights camped under the stars in that area. The Blue Gum Forest, Cox’s River 6 foot track. I still remember the flyer flies that would dance like a magic spell in secluded forest glens. I even mounted the middle sister of the Three Sisters ( or maybe that was another set of sisters 😉 ) when you were still allowed to rock climb them.
    Happy Days to you both !!!
