Wolgan Valley Resort and Spa, Blue Mountains, NSW
Blue Mountains World Heritage
The dramatic rock formation known as The Three Sisters at Echo Point in Katoomba has become an iconic symbol for the Blue Mountains. At the Visitor Information Centre a trail leads to the top of the Three Sisters via Honeymoon Bridge from the Giant Stairway for panoramic views into the Jamison Valley. There are 87 miles (140 kilometres) of heritage walking tracks and hundreds of lookouts throughout the Blue Mountains region. The landscape is part of the traditional country of Aboriginal people including Daruk, Gundungurra, Wiradjuri and Dharwal. The eastern area embraces Glenbrook, known as the Blue Labyrinth, which includes camping areas, scenic picnic areas, Aboriginal cultural sites and swimming holes. The Greater Blue Mountains National Park is where you will find the recently discovered Wollemi Pine, survivors of the world's oldest plants, unchanged for 200 million years. The Greater Blue Mountains National Park was given World Heritage listing in 2000.
