Customer Travel Tip: Go to the Common Ground Café: very good, healthy and cheap food!

Liked: Lovely sceneries, and very good vibes in Katoomba (nice little shops, handcraft and cafés)

Disliked: It's quite a touristic place but the car groups just stay in one or two places so you can easily get away from the crowd and go for lovely walks around.

Customer Travel Tip: Get a hop on hop off tour ticket for the explorer bus. The drivers will tell you where the best walks to do are and what is the best order to do it in. Buy your tickets for scenic world from the explorer hop on bus as it is cheaper than buying it at the centre!!!!! Make sure you know when the last bus heads back up to town as it is a really long really steep and brital walk back up to the town when you miss it. Trust me on this it is awful!!!!! Take lots of water when doing the walk and pace your self.

Liked: The cliff top walks are amazing and you can do as little or as much as you want. Three sisters and echo point is stunning. Sceninc world is incredible and the skyway car, train and cable car were fantastic. It is incredibly easy to get to, from sydney it is just a 2 hour train ride and it only cost about 8 dollars which is really cheap!!! The hop on hop off bus ticket lasted for my entire stay and the drivers are really helpful. They even gave me some pointers for which walks to do and what order to do it in.

Disliked: The food and drinks at the heritage centre down by echo point is expensive and not very good.
