We collected our Mega-saur-ass wicked Camper van from the Sydney Depot in sunny weather much to our delight:) On one side of the van we have dinosaurs bonking each other and on the other they are smoking fags, the back caption being the real reason dinosaurs are extinct 'Too Many Fags!!'. We made it up to the Blue Mountains capital Katoomba for an afternoon beer and camped in the heart of the mountains during a fabulous thunderstorm which lite up the whole park from the look out to which we'd walked. Sunday was spent exploring blackheath, the three sisters where we made the mistake of walking down the worlds largest staircase only to realise we had to walk all the way back up.We finally got to walk around Mount Wilson and Mount Victoria and the Grand Canyon Aussie Stylee. We took the skyway, rode the old coal railway down the mountain which was very cool and walked around the rain forest to catch the cable car back up. Paul got to eat the most expensive chips in NSW in Orbit with the floor spinning round - not a patch on empress states orbit bar though trust me:)
In the afternoon we climbed Wentworth Falls and went for a dip in the waterfall before driving to Pine forest to camp that night, we met another mad swaggie traveller who claimed to have found Ben Halls long lost stage coach and treasures. Not too sure what they put in the water over here but it makes for entertaining evenings:)
On the Monday we went to the amazing Jenolan Caves and took an expedition into the 'Temple of Bahl' a cave haunted by an ancient God who was dismissed by his worshippers due to his inability to make fire when tested by the mighty Jehovah (see pics).
That night we drove through the scenic Mount Oberon area and stayed the night in Yengo National Park near to Singleton, a pretty small town inland from Jordie Land.
