There´s possible 2-hour train journey from Sydney to Katoomba, about 100 km distance. This trip is definitely worth it...
We used a shuttle bus that runs from the train station to the most famous Echo Point every 30 minutes.During the weekend, the departure time changes and you can read more about it at the station.
There was enough space for a wheelchair in the Cableway cable car, which descends into the valley, and good advice - to stand on the left - was good one. The view from this place is across the Jamison Valley.
Take the two-kilometer-long wooden walkway from the cable car and read the information about local vegetation and animals. The trail ends with a beautiful view of the famous rock „sculpture Three Sisters, and one legend.
Three Sisters are the most famous rocks of the Blue Mountains and the legend says:
Three sisters, Meehni, Wimlah and Gunnedoo, fell in love with three brothers of another tribe. The elders of both tribes did approve the love and did not allow the marriages. The boys wanted to take the sisters by force, so the shaman turned the girl into stone to protect them.
But the shaman was killed in the fight and he was the only one able to break the spell. Therefore the sisters remained to be stone. That´s the legend…
We went down by very steep cable car, passed through a the forest with lianas and interesting trees and it was a very nice day trip.
