The Blue Mountains are an absolutely wonderful experience. The scenery is beautiful and there is so much to see and do. This was our 5th visit, we always go when we're in Sydney, and it won't be our last. Very highly recommended.

My husband uses a wheelchair- the three sisters are accessible but this is mountain territory and places can be v hilly.

We did a partial trip easily in one day from Sydney, but I would stay a night if you want to make the most of everything. Hopefully it also doubles your chance of a clear day. We apparently were very lucky and had a... More
