My husband and I are going to be visiting Australia for the first time in March. I have been planning the trip using all the invaluable advice on the forums but have run into a snag! We arrive in Sydney on Tuesday, March 9 and were planning to stay in the city until Saturday and then visit the Blue Mountains for two days before making our way to Bathurst, where my husband will be working the next week. Since that is the weekend of the music festival, almost all the accomodation around Katoomba is booked. Is there anywhere else that we should stay or is it just best to avoid the area completely since everywhere will be packed and go for a day trip from Sydney?
