Another beautiful place we visited during our Sydney trip, the Blue Mountains! Once again, it was a glorious day and we couldn’t ask for a better day!

Our tour coach brought us up the mountain and the first stop was Scenic World. This is the basic of Blue Mountains and a must see if you are only there for a day trip! We took the world’s steepest railway down and a cable way ride up!

On the Railway, it is a 52 degree incline where it descends 310 metres through a cliff-side tunnel and emerge into a rainforest! The railway was first created for mining purposes but was later bought over by the Hammon family and converted into a tourist attraction!

This was taken before we realized how steep it’s going to be! The sudden drop was unexpected and it was a thrilling and memorable ride!

Look how steep this is! Can you imagine the railway ride used to be a roofless metal cage like train?

A short 5 mins boardwalk to the cable way station. I love the forest and the clean cool air!

The cable way ride back up!

On the way back, our coach stop by Echo Point! Perched on the edge of the mountain, Echo Point provides a panoramic view of the Blue Mountains and the iconic Three Sisters! This place has the best view!
