AUSTRALIA Day02//23.Jan.04 - Farther afield: Blue Mountains & Safari Park

This was to be a day with nature. But mother nature was not in a particularly cooperative mood as the drive up the mountains was shrouded with gloomy skies and by the time we reached Katoomba it was drizzling and by the time we reached Echo Point to view the Three Sisters it was already raining in earnest. Thankfully, visibility was still relatively good and despite the rain we trek a bit, went on the Scenic Railway tram and the Skyway cable car.

From mountains we headed to plains, where we were introduced to safari inhabitants. Very educational. I now know that there are 3 different types of zebras and the difference between antlers and horns. :p A final stop at the Olympic Park as we headed back to Sydney city, and dinner at Star Casino wrapped up the tour for the day.
