Getting Here and Around in Katoomba
Getting Here and Around
Katoomba is just a few minutes’ drive from Leura on the Great Western Highway. A train station connects the town with the rest of the region, as does the Blue Mountains Bus Company. A good deal is the Blue Mountains Explorer Link ticket (www.sydneytrains.info/tickets/which/explorerlink), which can be purchased at Sydney railway stations. The A$49.60 pass combines a same-day return train ticket from Sydney to Katoomba and a day’s access to the red double-decker Explorer buses that travel around Katoomba and Leura stopping at 29 stops (www.explorerbus.com.au). A three-day version of the pass costs A$71.60.
Another economical sightseeing option is the Blue Mountains Trolley bus (www.trolleytours.com.au), which provides a similar hop-on, hop-off tour, visiting 29 stops, in a vehicle that resembles a San Francisco streetcar. The cost is A$25, and tickets are available at the Trolley Shoppe near Katoomba railway station.
