Blue Mountains Tourist : Spring 2009
Welcome to Katoomba! The quirky home of traditional shopping, it's also the place where breathtaking natural scenery, history, the arts, and café culture merge, making it a fascinating place to explore at a leisurely pace---on foot. To get the most out of your visit to Katoomba, grab a "Katoomba's Heritage and Art Walk" map from one of the shops in Katoomba Street or download it from www.blue mountainstouristnewspaper.com.au. It will help you appreciate the historic buildings, murals, festivals, "slow food" restaurants and picnic spots. It will tell you where to find a Tofu Burger, handmade Chocolates, Cherry Strudel, handmade Sushi, excellent Coffee from fresh-roasted beans, Sourdough Bread, Cardamon Cake, and steamed Dim Sims. The brochure/map is an initiative of Katoomba Chamber of Commerce and Community. Katoomba supports energy descent: • Minimal use of plastics and disposables in our businesses • Use of local products wherever possible, reducing food miles and packaging, paper or cloth bags for our shoppers • Development of car free tourism experiences. firstname.lastname@example.org Tel 1300 SKYWAY | 02 4780 0200 Cnr Violet St and Cliff Drive Katoomba NSW 2780 www.scenicworld.com.au DISCOVER ANOTHER WORLD This amazing 1.5 hour round-trip trek includes crossing Katoomba Falls on the Scenic Skyway (almost twice as high as the Sydney Harbour Bridge!), a visit to the Three Sisters, Climbing down-down-down the Giant Stairway, walking through beautiful temperate RainforEst, & travelling back up to Scenic World on the Scenic Railway (the steepest railway in the world!)
