A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Katoomba, Australia by TravelPod blogger Jjediny titled “Blue Mountains” Jjediny’s travel blog entry: “Took a weekend trip up to the blue mountains with OZ experience. Leaving bright and early Saturday morning on the first city bus. 45 minutes and 10 min speed walk we made it. We left with our tour guide Mark on our first weekend get away. The perfect weekend was on its way, blue skies for the blue mountain… Don’t worry i have plenty more clique lines where that came from. The place is beautiful if your in Sydney for a month or more this is a have to do adventure. Plus the trips are cheap and the drive is only about 2 hours with plenty of stops on the way up.. We stayed over at the YHA in Katoomba, I would do it again in a instant. The all day hike and sightseeing tires you out but puts you in the mood to shower up and hit the town where you can get something to eat or drink in this Main St. kind of town where bars and food is no more then a 4 block walk. Had a good dinner and good conversation good beer good day. Oh yea and I got to play chess on the largest board I’ve ever seen. The next day we headed to the Jenolan caves where we toured through Lucas cave. We got to walk around a little before the tour and check out the blue lake. We toured the caves and packed back up and headed back for the 3 buses we needed to get before we got home. To finish it off we got a good bye rainbow… Great weekend” Read and see more
