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.
