The legend of the Three Sisters! Jun 10, 2015
The Three Sisters are a famous rock formation towering high above the Jamison Valley

The commonly told legend of the Three Sisters is that three sisters (Meehni', 'Wimlah' and Gunnedoo') lived in the Jamison Valley as members of the Katoomba tribe. They fell in love with three men from a neighboring tribe (the Nepean tribe), but marriage was forbidden by tribal law. The brothers were not happy to accept this law and so decided to use force to capture the three sisters. A major tribal battle ensued, and the sisters were turned to stone by an elder to protect them, but he was killed in the fighting and no one else could turn them back. This legend is claimed to be an Indigenous Australian Dreamtime legend.

There was an beautiful overlook adjacent to the car park. From there, I could see deep forested valleys below us with some exposed cliffs towering over the scene. The view of the three sisters is perfect from the overlook area.

The character of the Three Sisters changes throughout the day and throughout the seasons as the sunlight brings out the magnificent colors. The Three Sisters is also floodlit each evening creating a dazzling display against the night sky. An amazing place should be on the list if someone traveling to Sydney area.
Beautiful view of The Three Sister…

There is a "Three Sisters" fairy chimney formation in Cappadocia, but related to some Greek legend I think.
