The Blue Mountains
An easy day trip out of Sydney you can be at the base of the mountains in under an hour. Head up to Katoomba famous for the spectacular view of the Three Sisters from Echo Point and ride along the mountains edge on Cliff Drive. Drive through the small mountain villages and communities to the historical mining town of Lithgow. From Lithgow you return to Sydney via the Bells Line of Road. Bells Line is a beautiful mountain road that passes by the Botanic Gardens, through fruit orchards and winds beautifully down the mountain beneath a canopy of trees and the calls of native birds.
