Located off of the Great Western Highway, Katoomba is the main hub of the City of Blue Mountains.
Popular historic sites such as The Australiana Pioneer Village and Ebenezer Church are in your itinerary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Port Kembla Beach and Bass Point Reserve. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Katoomba: Anvil Rock Lookout (in Blackheath), Mittagong (Lake Alexandra Reserve & Artemis Wines) and Anvil Rock Lookout (in Blue Mountains National Park). On the 10th (Thu), dedicate a day to the elevated beauty of Perry's Lookdown. There's lots more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Wentworth Falls Lake, stop by The Nook, take in breathtaking views at Pulpit Rock Lookout, and take some stellar pictures from Lincoln's Rock.

Plan a trip to Katoomba easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Warrnambool to Katoomba is an approximately 10.5-hour combination of train, shuttle, and flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or drive. In January, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Sun) so you can travel to Wallerawang.
