Let’s take a look at a few of these activities below…

  • See The Three Sisters in person!

    The Three Sisters have long held a place in Australian storytelling, with the legend being told to primary school kids around the country. The legend has it that the three sisters were part of the local Katoomba tribe and that three brothers of the neighbouring Nepean tribe attempted to kidnap them for their hands in marriage.

    A bloody battle ensued, and a Katoomba elder sealed the sisters in stone to save them from their fate. However, the elder was killed in the fighting, and was the only one who could return them to their human forms. Thus, the sisters stand there frozen in eternity, and visitors experience this wondrous rock formation from the amazing Echo Point.
