Katoomba

Located off of the Great Western Highway, Katoomba is the main hub of the City of Blue Mountains.
Kick off your visit on the 22nd (Sun): explore the stunning scenery at Pulpit Rock Lookout, delve into the lush surroundings at Coachwood Glen Nature Trail, and then skim along the rocks with a canyoning and rapelling tour. On the 23rd (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Blue Mountains, appreciate the extensive heritage of The National Pass, then admire the sheer force of Wentworth Falls, and finally admire the sheer force of Katoomba Cascades.

Plan my Katoomba trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Katoomba is an approximately 14.5-hour combination of flight and train. You can also do a combination of bus, flight, and train; or do a combination of train and flight. Traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Katoomba, you'll lose 2 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Kuala Lumpur in December, things will get a bit cooler in Katoomba: highs are around 34°C and lows about 19°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Mon) to allow enough time to drive to Sydney.
