The Blue Mountains birthday Harley tour was organised for Frances. What better way is there to celebrate a birthday!
The Three Sisters
Our two Harley riders picked our passengers up from their hotel in Leura. After that, it was a 2 hour ride around the Blue Mountains. There are so many beautiful places to visit, so many lookouts to see. The Three Sisters is the Blue Mountains’ most spectacular landmark and are located at Echo Point in Katoomba. Our riders stopped at Eagle Hawk Lookout for photos and so all could have a stretch.
After riding around the scenic sights of the Blue Mountains for a while, they also stopped at the Wentworth Falls tracks Lookout. This gives a totally different view of the Jamison Valley. The Blue Mountains birthday Harley tour was showing them many of the famous sights.
Govetts Leap Lookout
Discovering so many sights is fun. Not in any particular order – The Three Sisters – Echo Point affords views of the Three Sisters sandstone rock formation. Wentworth Falls, the old gaol, Hartley Valley, Govetts Leap Lookout, in the Blackheath area. Leura, Katoomba and past Hydro Majestic. Just to name a few of the places. However, the 2 hours was p so our Harley riders dropped them back at their hotel. In conclusion, the Mountains birthday Harley tour was a huge success – Happy Birthday!
World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park – information
The world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park is a protected national park. It is located in the Blue Mountains region of NSW. The 267,954-hectare (662,130-acre) national park is situated approximately 80 kilometres (50 mi) west of Sydney. Interestingly, the park boundary is quite irregular as it is broken up by roads, urban areas and inholdings. Despite the name ‘mountains’, the area is an uplifted plateau, dissected by a number of larger rivers. Mount Werong is the highest point in the park at 1,215 metres (3,986 ft) above sea level; while the low point is on the Nepean River at 20 metres (66 ft) above sea level as it leaves the park.

In 2000, the national park was inscribed to form part of the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Greater Blue Mountains Area. On 21 May 2007, the Greater Blue Mountains was one of 15 World Heritage places included in the National Heritage List.
