Katoomba and the Blue Mountains

On our holiday in Sydney last Christmas we went for a family drive to Leura and Katoomba in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney.  We stopped for short while at Echo Point and the Three Sisters lookout.

I had a debate with my son after our visit. We discussed whether this – or somewhere else in Australia – was the most photographed natural feature in Australia. Uluru would have to be right up there in the top few, but I contended that for sheer numbers, the Three Sisters at Katoomba would have to be close to the top. There must have been close to a thousand people in the half hour we were there, and the stream was relentless. Most people would have taken dozens of shots while there.
