From Sydney, it’s only a 2-hour train ride to Blue Mountains National Park. A perfect place to enjoy nature and go for a hike. In this blog, I’ll share my favorite pictures.

Viewpoint from Three Sisters
There’s a path to a viewpoint at the base of the most left part of Three Sisters. From there you’ll have an incredible view of Blue Mountains National Park.
There are lots of stairs to climb

The practical things
How to get there?
Every day several trains leave from Sydney Central Station to Katoomba. Tickets will you cost you somewhere between 6 and 9 Australian dollars. Check this website for the timetable.
Where to stay?
I stayed at Flying Fox Hostel in Katoomba, which I can highly recommend. It’s in walking distance from the train station and there are dorms and private rooms. They have a very cozy living room to hang out for a bit. The owner is very friendly and knows everything about hiking in Blue Mountains National Park. It’s not a party hostel, so you’ll meet people of every age in this hostel. You can book a room in Flying Fox by clicking this link.
