We made a short stop for hot drinks and biscuits. The tour guide asked us if we wanted to visit the Valley and see the three sisters- it’s not included in the day tour so you have to pay additional money.

After lunch we went to the valley and took this awesome train and cable car. It’s like a roller coaster, one of my highlights of the tour. When you go for the walk there are three options based on time: 15,25,45 minutes. We chose the longest one to make the most out of the tour.

Once we had finished we drove past the Olympic Park and then a complimentary cruise back to the Harbour Bridge.  The Blue Mountains is a great place to visit, you get a real taste of Australia and its history. To finish off I went to see the sunset at a hidden park which I was told about by my new friend.
