The Three Sisters in Katoomba in the Blue Mountains is one of Australia's must-see bucket list experiences. Part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, the Three Sisters is an iconic formation that you must see at least once in your lifetime. There are different versions of the Aboriginal story of the Three Sisters, but what you’re bound to agree with is how truly spectacular it is.

Standing proudly in the land of the Gundungurra and Darug People, the traditional custodians of this declared Aboriginal Place, the imposing Three Sisters is best seen from Echo Point lookout, on the edge of the plateau above.

These three weathered sandstone peaks, formed thousands of years ago through erosion, are set among the cliffs of the Jamison Valley. From the lookout, you’ll be able to see the Ruined Castle and Mount Solitary.

Natural, beautiful lookout spot

The views here are incredible as far as the eye can see and you can clearly see the blue which gives this location its name. I’ve been here twice now and I will visit again because you can’t get bored of a view like that!
