Australia’s Blue Mountains

Posted on

When Mr. M said “I want to go to Australia!”, I said, “I want to go to the Blue Mountains!”. So yesterday we did! It was an eleven hour day! Not all of it was spent in the Blue Mountains themselves, we also visited a very worthy animal rescue called Featherdale and had a lovely lunch. We also went to the Waradah Cultural Center to learn about Aboriginal culture. It was an exhausting and extremely interesting day.

If you are ever in Sydney, don’t miss your chance to visit the Blue Mountains. I will recommend Anderson’s Blue Mountain Tours, a small, family run business that does a wonderful job! We had a full day of fun! I know that one can get there on the Hop On Hop Off buses, and other means, but Anderson’s guides are personable, caring, informative and make the day fun!

Here are a few pictures:

This first one is not very good because of the lighting but is a demonstration of the didgeridoo:

These two are rescue animals at the Featherdale Rescue center:

This is the steepest train ride in the world and it was fun, if a bit scary:

And . of course my shot of the three sisters and the blue air (Yes, it does actually appear to be blue due to the chemicals given off by the eucalyptus trees).

And one of the most unusual and interesting things I discovered: A steam powered clock!

Tomorrow, we leave Sydney and go on with our Southern Hemisphere adventures!

Stay tuned for our next adventure!

Until then!
