Mountains, valleys, forests, waterfalls and dramatic scenery. The Blue Mountains are unforgettable and one of our favourite places during our Australian travels.
Hike from Conservation Hut to Empress Falls & Sylvia Falls through the Valley of Waters
This was the highlight of our visit to The Blue Mountains. The steep walk down offers incredible views across the valley. Once we reached the bottom we were greeted by the beauty of Empress Falls. We admired the canyoneers as they plunged into the pools of the falls. We walked further on to Sylvia Falls. By far our favourite waterfall in the area. Sylvia falls gracefully through the lush green rainforest with the valley plunging behind. It was a perfect spot for us to cool off on such a hot day and after a long hike.
The Three Sisters
We visited the lookout over the Three Sisters. It was a breath taking view over the rock formations and the valleys, the lush greenery dropping dramatically. We took the railway down at Scenic World to get even better views! We then took the cable car back to the top, its great way to view the area on a clear day.
The walking track follows a cascading stream offering plenty of beautiful spots for a picnic and a cool down. The rainforest surrounding is green and vibrant and makes perfect scenes for photographers. We spent a long time here capturing scenes and embracing all the nature around us. Once we reached the end of the trail, we felt like we were on the edge of the world as the huge waterfall fell below us dropping deep into the Jamison Valley.
Sunset at Cahills Lookout
We took a couple of drinks and our camera and sat and watched as the sun dropped in front of us over the rugged mountain ranges and valley. Incredible view and a must see while visiting The Blue Mountains.
Wentworth Falls Lookout
Incredible views over Wentworth Falls and the valley. We took the walk down to the top of the falls, and had a swim at the beautiful Queens Cascade.
