The Harley tour of Blue Mountains was organised for John by his wife. He had a great time and hasn’t stopped raving about it. Our Harley rider Gad picked John up from their accommodation in Katoomba, Blue Mountains.
Wentworth Falls Lookout
Firstly, they rode to the Wentworth Falls Lookout. Beautiful views of the Blue Mountains National Park and Mount Solitary can be seen from here. Riding further up the Blue Mountains, they rode the back way, the scenic way.
The Three Sisters
This took them through Leura to Katoomba and The Three Sisters at Echo Point. Gad and John rode around the area, checking out the other beautiful sights and points of interest. So far, the Harley tour of Blue Mountains was going well.
Great Western Highway
However, the two hours was almost up so Gad rode them back along the Great Western Highway. It’s a good road to ride on a Harley or any motorcycle because it has curves and bends. A great way to really feel the Harley move beneath you.
In conclusion, the Harley tour of Blue Mountains was a huge success. John loved every second of it and the fact Gad picked him up from their accommodation, made the whole experience so easy.
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. The Blue Mountains National Park is the most central of the eight protected areas within the World Heritage Site and it forms part of the Great Dividing Range. The park is also listed on the Australian Heritage Register. Also, the overall complex of Blue Mountains regional walking tracks is listed on the State Heritage Register.
