In a country known for walkabouts and wandering it’s no surprise one of the biggest attractions is also one of the most mythical. According to local folklore, three sisters once fell in love with three men from a different tribe—a love that was forbidden. When the men tried to capture and marry the women war broke out and the ladies were turned to stone to protect them.

Today, travelers who flock to Blue Mountain Park ascend the 800-plus stairs to the valley floor in order to catch a glimpse of the stones that tower hundreds of meters into the sky.

Practical Info

The Giant Stairway leading to Three Sisters can prove a taxing return journey, even for the fittest of adventurers. Instead, take an easy 1.5-hour walk along the Federal Pass Trail after a visit to the Sisters. There, travelers can hitch a ride on the Katoomba Scenic Railway and avoid the exhausting trek for a small fee.
