*BUSH FIRE PLAN (Jan) - We may need to alter hikes due to the current emergency.
People travel from all over the world to view the Three Sisters, but this experience is for those with a true sense of adventure, who want to get off the beaten path and into the wilderness.
With a like-minded group of explorers, you’ll travel by scenic train from Sydney's CBD to tackle a full-day trek through the Blue Mountains. You’ll explore lush forests and stunning vistas before climbing 300m/1000ft (over 800 steps in total!) to emerge beneath the Three Sisters themselves. You'll walk across a bridge to get up close to the Three Sisters, before returning along the cliff tops.
This hike isn't for the faint-hearted. As well as the 800 steps, you'll be walking over 14 km (9 miles) in around 5-7 hours. A high level of fitness is required.
But...if you're looking for a true, challenging taste of Australian bushland topped with photo opportunities at the iconic Three Sisters - this is the hike for you.
