Katoomba Falls, seen here with its several segments, is like nature preening.

It calls you to get close, glide above the valley and fall with its waters, cascading from the ridge to the forest below.

Fortunately, one can do so within the safety of the Skyway cable car. But getting this shot meant holding out and pointing the camera directly at the valley 270 meters below.

Great Fun!

“Katoomba” comes from the aboriginal name meaning “water tumbling over a hill.”

The Katoomba Falls is within the Blue Mountains National Park, a World-Heritage listed site, just 1-1/2 hours drive from Sydney (around 100 kilometers).
