Anna wanted to do something fun for herself so she organised a Blue Mountain Harley ride. It is a great place to explore. Our Harley rider Syl picked Anna up from a prearranged spot in Katoomba.
Firstly, they rode to Lincoln Rock, it is an incredible lookout. As well as the all-encompassing views of Jamison Valley, which change colour throughout the day as the sun and clouds move overhead, the drawcard of Lincoln’s Rock is the impressive optical-illusion photo you can get as a memento, which makes it appear as though you’re sitting literally on the edge of a cliff. In truth you are, except that there’s a fairly safe ledge just below that would stop you from falling very far.
Next it was through Leura. Leura is arguably the prettiest village in the Blue Mountains. The gardens of Leura are famous for their magnificent displays of flowers.
The Three Sisters
Following the road from Leura, you end up at the Three Sisters, Katoomba. The Three Sisters is essentially an unusual rock formation representing three sisters who according to Aboriginal legend, were turned to stone. Each of the Three Sisters stand at 922, 918 & 906 metres tall, respectively. That’s over 3000 feet above sea level! So far, the Blue Mountain Harley ride is very interesting and a lot of fun.
Visit Govetts Leap you’ll know why it’s one of the most famous lookouts in Australia. The magnificent waterfall drops a whopping 180m to the base of the cliff, and if you’re not mesmerised by the dancing waves of water spray you’ll be transfixed by the sweeping views down the valley to the Grose Wilderness.
The westernmost village in the Blue Mountains, Mount Victoria is brimming with historic charm and natural attractions. Originally a stockade for convict chain-gangs, and later an important staging post for Cobb & Co coaches, the town became known as Mount Victoria in the 1860s when the railway came to town.
However, the 2 hour tour was almost over. So, Syl rode Anna back to her car. In conclusion, the Blue Mountain Harley ride was a lot of fun, a success, something Anna is so glad she did.
Of course you can use the photos! It was great! I really enjoyed it.
