Even though Sydney is a great city I decided 2 days are enough and boarded a regional train to Katoomba. This little town is the major hub for exploring the Blue Mountains. I didn’t expect the place that bustling and touristy, but it was easy to escape the crowds that were only brought to the major lookouts by bus. I hiked along the cliffs and enjoyed a little solitude and amazing views. …. and even met a little strange animal – an echidna.
