    A cute, clean bed and breakfast although without the breakfast. Was very disappointed to find as we left to be charged $20 for 2 pieces of toast and a bowl of cereal. The fireplace didn't work although we payed extra money for it. After a heated exchange $10 was refunded to us. There was no hot water for showers in the morning. The host was most unwelcoming.

Travel Tips for Katoomba

Exploring the valley floors

by victorwkf

Not people have the chance to explore the valley floors of the mountains which is rich in wildlife, especially the eucalyptus trees which the volatile eucalyptus oil is said to give the bluish colour of the mountains. If you plan to stay long, you can try to do some walking on the valley floors.

3 sisters

by Larnie

The Legend...

The Aboriginal dream-time legend has it that three sisters, 'Meehni', 'Wimlah' and Gunnedoo' lived in the Jamison Valley as members of the Katoomba tribe.

These beautiful young ladies had fallen in love with three brothers from the Nepean tribe, yet tribal law forbade them to marry.


The brothers were not happy to accept this law and so decided to use force to capture the three sisters causing a major tribal battle.

As the lives of the three sisters were seriously in danger, a witchdoctor from the Katoomba tribe took it upon himself to turn the three sisters into stone to protect them from any harm. While he had intended to reverse the spell when the battle was over, the witchdoctor himself was killed. As only he could reverse the spell to return the ladies to their former beauty, the sisters remain in their magnificent rock formation as a reminder of this battle for generations to come.

Golden Staircase Climb

by Larnie

A great climb in the beautiful mountains!!

The descent from the Golden Stairs carpark is fairly steep and technical- no grand staircase of anything like that which the name might suggest. It's a rocky, muddy descent with 2-3 sections of metal stairs. It keeps dropping and dropping.. Eventually you reach a T junction with a good, flat trail.
Theres a big sign right opposite, which points left to the Scenic Railway and right to Solitary and the Ruined Castle.
The climb up to the ruined castle is a steep one, but the views are stunning.

Make sure you pack lots of water and a tasty lunch to enjoy whilst looking over the scenic view of the mountains.

Need to be physically fit, as it is not an easy climb.

Stunning scenery!!!

SCENIC WALKWAYS..

by DennyP

There are many scenic walkways one can take from either Echo point or from the Valley floor after catching the Scenic Railway down.The walks vary in distance and grades..walks are all signposted...ALWAYS stay to the walkways as this is a huge area and to wander off and get lost can be extremely dangerous..Always carry plenty of drinking water ..there are NO facilities down in The Jamieson valley..For serious bushwalking information and maps...see Tourist info at Echo Point ...they have it all..

A Small Mountain Town

by cjg1

Katoomba is the big town in the Blue Mountains region. The name Katoomba is Aboriginal and means "shining falling water" . The name is perfect since the region has large and smaler waterfalls throughout the area.

The town itself is a perfect stop to grab a bite to eat or check into a B&B before exploring the Blue Mountain Region.
