But as amazing as the Three Sisters are, there is more to the Blue Mountains, so read on for more things to see and do in the Blue Mountains.

Offering a mix of scenic views and serious thrills, Scenic World is a must-do. It has Australia's only glass-bottomed cable car and the steepest passenger-carrying railway in the world.
Jenolan Caves, Jenolan
Once you've been to the Jenolan Caves you might argue that the best views in the Blue Mountains are underground. These are some of the best-preserved cave systems in the world, boasting crystal clear underground rivers, stalactites, stalagmites and crystal limestone formations. It's like visiting another world and is an experience not to be missed.

Offering endless views and perfectly manicured gardens that are beautiful in any season, the Botanic Gardens are perfect for a romantic picnic or walk.
Blue Mountains Sparadise, South Bowenfels

Barely a week goes by in the Blue Mountains without a festival of some sorts - from music, literature and arts, to food and flowers. There's the Yulefest from June to August, the Winter Magic Solstice in June, the Elvis Festival in August, the Collector's Plant Fair in April and more!
