Katoomba is easily the best place to get the full experience of being in the Blue Mountains. It’s home to one of Australia’s icons of nature, the Three Sisters, and its surrounding walkways are equally enticing and as gentle as you like. In town, you’ll find an array of boutique and local fashion, as well as cosy dining experiences at all levels. The middle of the year sees a special time with Yulefest, which is the Blue Mountains community’s own Christmas celebrations.

Westward from Katoomba stands the sheltered remains of the Marked Tree known as the Explorers Tree, reputed to have the carved initials of the Three Exploreres on it.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
