How to Spend 2 Days in the Blue Mountains

How to Spend 2 Days in the Blue Mountains

Most travelers visit the Blue Mountains UNESCO World Heritage Site on a day trip from Sydney, but this region, replete with stunning natural beauty, diverse wildlife, and rich indigenous culture, deserves more of your time. Here’s how to spend 48 hours in the Blue Mountains.

Day 1: Check Out the Sights

**Morning:**Check off the most important landmarks, such as the Three Sisters and Echo Point lookouts, and get an introduction to the region on a private or group sightseeing tour. Alternatively, a hop-on-hop-off-bus tour, departing from Katoomba Railway Station, lets you explore at your own pace.

**Afternoon:**Embark on an easy hike from Leura Cascades to Bridal Veil Falls or opt for the more challenging Echo Point Trail, in which the Giant Stairway leads to the Three Sisters. 

**Night:**Stick around Katoomba for the evening, as the town is home to some excellent restaurants serving locally sourced produce. You’ll find a diverse cluster of eateries on and around the main drag, Katoomba Street, and higher-end restaurants inside the town’s hotels and resorts. 

Day 2: Dive Deeper Into the Natural Surroundings

**Morning:**Kick off your second day adventurously on an abseiling tour, taking in unparalleled views of the Blue Mountains as you rappel down a rock face. Tours are typically suitable even for those with little or no experience and include all abseiling equipment.

**Afternoon:**Spend this afternoon exploring the attractions of Scenic World. An all-day pass gives you unlimited access to the Scenic Railway, the world’s steepest incline railway; the 1.5-mile (2.4-kilometer) Scenic Walkway elevated boardwalk; the Scenic Cableway, an aerial cable car; and the glass-floored Scenic Skyway, which glides between cliff tops and over rain forest canopy.

**Night:**Conclude your visit to the Blue Mountains on an evening tour of Wollemi National Park to discover its nocturnal wildlife. With the aid of a spotlight and guide, you’ll have the chance to learn about and see wombats, sugar gliders, kangaroos, and owls.
