The Enchantment of Blue Mountains

aussie

A little slipping from the many itineraries to Sydney that had not been reached yet, instead it had shifted to a one day getaway plan from the City of Sydney. Many friends had recommended that the Blue Mountains located in New South Wales be the right choice. The trip took approximately 2 hours if taken by train and 3 hours by bus. If you take the train, you can start from St Central Sydney, heading to St Katoomba (Blue Mt). After arriving at St Katoomba, continue taking the bus from the stop in front of the Carrington Hotel.

There are Blue Mountains outside Sydney. There, there is a unique cliff of The Three Sister, which according to legend this cliff is the incarnation of 3 beautiful princesses who are condemned to be protected during the war between tribes. But geologically, the formation of these cliffs from soil erosion. From Echo Point you can see The Three Sister which is the landmark of the Blue Mountains.

After that there was a thrilling ride called Scenic World consisting of 4 rides.

1. Scenic Skyway

You will be invited to cross from one valley to the other. That makes you nervous, when you look down. You can see anything below when you are at a height of 270 m deep. Because, Scenic Skyway is covered with glass. And became the first skyway ride in the world to use the world’s first glass.

2. Scenic Railway

Sit on the train and be invited to climb with the steepest incline in the world, which is 400 meters down a cliff. Across the long dark tunnel that runs through a valley of trees and stops at the station located at the bottom of the valley.

3. Scenic Cableway

Take the cable car with a height of 585 m from the ground. From that height, you can see The Three Sisters, Orphan Rock, Mt Solitary, and Katoomba Falls. In the Scenic Cableway it can carry a maximum of 84 passengers.

4. Scenic Walkway

Create a incredible experience of exploring the forest because there is a board walk along the 2.4 km at the bottom of the valley, and feel the sensation of the forest. Listen to the singing of wild birds while looking at old trees that have lived hundreds of years there. When you walk here the cool thing is the route can be chosen by yourself. Want a short one with a duration of 10 minutes, to the longest about 1 hour.

Anyway, I recommend you to try Scenic World rides, feel the adrenaline. Opened from 9:00 to 21:00. With a ticket price of 39 AUD (IDR 402,000) for adults, children 21 AUD (IDR 216,500), and a family of 99 AUD (IDR 1,020,400).

Besides trying the attractions, you can also do hiking activities in this place. Because the track and outdoor atmosphere is very good.
