During our day trip to Leura and Katoomba we stopped for afternoon tea in the picnic grounds at Govett’s Leap in the Blue Mountains. We had bought some nice goodies to eat from a local bakery.
During our picnic I made a list of the birds heard or seen in the surrounding forest, while my daughter caught up on a little reading.
After our visit to Katoomba we drove on to Govett’s Leap. On the way we bought some goodies from a local bakery for afternoon tea. At Govett’s Leap there is a very pleasant picnic ground complete with picnic tables. The scenery from the lookout is truly spectacular.
Over recent days I have posted several photos of the Three Sisters and the landscape taken from Echo Point in Katoomba. Today I present several more photos of this magnificent place.
During our visit to Katoomba in the Blue Mountains just after last Christmas I took quite a few photos of the Three Sisters and the landscape views from Echo Point Lookout.
We’d visited this spot on a number of previous times but I did not have any digital photos of this amazing physical feature. You actually have to visit this spot to appreciate the size of these sandstone stacks, but you can get a little understanding by looking at the photo above. The size can be gauged by the size of the people on the walkway in the lower left hand corner of the photo.

On our holiday last Christmas in Sydney we went for a family drive to the Blue Mountains. One place I really wanted to visit was Echo Point, mainly to get some good digital photos of the Three Sisters. For readers who are not aware of this beautiful natural feature an hour’s drive west of Sydney, the Three Sisters are three sandstone stacks that have been formed through water and wind erosion over thousands of years. The three stacks are right next to each other, hence the name.
This amazing physical feature is one of Australia’s most photographed spots. Tens of thousands of visitors come to the lookout every day, most with cameras clicking wildly. I had to be one of them!
