. : Blue Mountains Trip : Scenic Skyway : .

Sambungan pertama Blue Mountains Trip 

First ride yg kami naik ialah Scenic Skyway ...belum naik tp jantung mama dh bedebar2 sbb mama ni mmg pengayat dari dl xnk la kene tinggal ngn en.hubbie kalo xnk naik..huhu serius Adam Yusuf mmg ikut perangai mama yg takut tggi..menjerit dlm skyway tu..huhu

Dari Skyway ni kita blh nmpk The Three Sister Rock, Wentworth Falls & The Orphan Rock..cantik sgt smpi mama lupe jap gayat ..hehe kdg2 mmg kene lawan perasaan takut tu..

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 neighbouring 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.[1]
However, Dr Martin Thomas, in his work "The artificial horizon: imagining the Blue Mountains",[2] clearly shows that the "aboriginal" legend is a fabrication created by a non-Aboriginal local Katoomba, Mel Ward, presumably to add interest to a local landmark. The story originated in the late 1920s or early 1930s and is unknown prior to that date.
The Aboriginal traditional owners, the Gundungurra, have a legend that includes the Sisters rock formation. They are currently[when?] developing a website which will include these traditional stories.
