There really is something for all ages when it comes to the amazing array of attractions that can be found in Katoomba in the Blue Mountains. From the young to the young at heart you can take your pick from just relaxing and getting totally pampered at one of the day spas, or perhaps you would like to wander through the beautifully landscaped gardens, and for the kids you can check out the nature parks and Skyrail and Scenic walk for something really cool.
The Three Sisters at Eco Point would have to be the most famous recognised attractions in the Katoomba region where you can take and easy walk to the lookout and be captivated by the commanding views for as far as the eye can see, and then if you are feeling really energetic you can take the 800 steps down to the valley floor and then back up again…. which is a great way to get close to nature!
Within Katoomba there are many wonderful shops, retails outlets, quaint boutiques as well as restaurants that cater for all tastes and not to mention the beautiful churches, art galleries and museums. You can spend all day just wandering around and admiring it all and then finish the day off in one of the picnic grounds, al fresco restaurants or cafes or landscaped gardens to relax in. There are also day spas which you can book yourself into if you really want to get completely pampered and start your holiday off with a bang.
