The Blue Mountains from Honeymoon Lookout
could travel by train. The train to the Blue Mountains travels through
Blacktown which is the local train station and it would be a pleasant way to
travel the eighty kilometres to Katoomba. There is an Explorer bus
travelling to the various scenic spots and although we were tempted we
decided it would be good to have the flexibility of the car, especially as
the weather was so cold.
As we made our way to Echo Point and the popular Three Sisters we stopped
off at Honeymoon Lookout. There is a walk from the nearby Silver Mists Park
to the lookout which has views across the valley. While we were at the
lookout the Explore Bus came by dropping off travellers - there is twenty
minutes before the next bus was due so the travellers had a cold wait. We
were so pleased to have the car.
