Travel Trilogy - Sydney; Blue Mountains
Sunday, July 27, 2008

Another day trip on the weekends that was fully spent on exploring the other parts of Sydney. 48km west of Sydney, about a 2hours bus ride brings you to the stunning Blue Mountains. It's absolutely beautiful. Words cant justify nor describe how fantastic the view was, not even picture. Seriously, you have to be there to see it yourself...

Often mistaken as kangaroos at first glance, Wallaby are the marsupials found in the lands of Australia. Wallabies range in size from the size of a rabbit to almost 6 ft long.

The other animals at the zoo. Not enclosed in any cage, they run/hop around the zoo freely, allowing tourists to get closer to them. I got to feed the Wallabies and it's so ticklish when they nibble the food from my palm!

Australia's most loved and most popular mammal! The word Koala is an Aboriginal word meaning "no water". Koala is the native 'bear' of the continent but the fact is Koala has no relation to a bear. It is actually a distant cousin to the Wombat. A koala is probably one of the most docile and cuddly animals on earth. A typical koala spends about 20% of its time feeding, nearly 80% sleeping, and less than 1% grooming, traveling and seeking mates... Geeez~

More animals!

Top left is an albino kangaroo, koala and my favourite Wombat! Totally love it. Round and fat and so cutee!

Finally arrived at Blue Mountains. We were blessed with a clear day and got to see the best of it... Oh, did i mention it was so cold up there!!

It's stunning.... Awesome view~ Got to be the best i've seen so far in Sydney. As the name suggest, the mountain actually does seems kinda blue ya?

The road around Blue Mountains actually involves a skyway, cableway, walkway and railway. The most exciting one has got to be the railway! The 415m descent will take you through a cliff side tunnel into ancient rain forest. It has also been known as the steepest incline Railway in the world. I was literally screaming my heart out. Imagine riding down a CLIFF side tunnel... It's insane!

More of the beautiful Blue Mountains. Spot the Three Sisters?

Sunset view. We took a long ferry ride back to Sydney Habour. Sat in the open air and was freezing my life away in the cold. Day ended and Blue Mountains was one of the best places i've seen. I noticed houses near toward the cliff just opposite Blue Mountains. Imagine waking up to this amazing view every morning. What more can you ask for?

Okay I gotta end here. Just finish a 9km walk all the way from Mount Faber to Kent Ridge Park. It was actually quite good... Will blog more abt the rest of Sydney next week. Cheeers y'all~
