Located off of the Great Western Highway, Katoomba is the main hub of the City of Blue Mountains.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Leura Cascades. Start off your visit on the 1st (Thu): Head underground at Jenolan Caves, then take in the awesome beauty at Blue Mountains, and then take in the dramatic scenery at Wentworth Falls. Keep things going the next day: admire the natural beauty at Everglades Historic House and Gardens, make a trip to Echo Point Lookout, take some stellar pictures from The Three Sisters, then trek along The Giant Stairway, and finally sample the tasty concoctions at Bilpin Cider Company.

For other places to visit, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Katoomba trip itinerary planner .

You can drive from Sydney to Katoomba in 2 hours. Another option is to take a train. Plan for slightly colder nights when traveling from Sydney in July since evenings lows in Katoomba dip to 3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 3rd (Sat) to allow enough time to drive back home.
