There is a certain tranquillity in the mountain suburbs west of Sydney, and my favourite mountain suburb would have to be Leura. So last weekend when I went up for a couple of days, I was wandering around some of the backsstreets leading down to Leura cascades, and I stumbled upon a small pathway off Olympian Parade.
Of course I had to explore, so I followed the path and went down the steps to one of the most beautiful lookouts I'd ever been to! The size of the mountains and depths of the valleys were so majestic and breathtaking. There's just not enough words to explain it!
And it's not only beautiful during the day, but I returned again that night, and it had transformed into, if possible, and even more beautiful place! The stars were out in all their glory, and in the valley depths, a fog had formed, making it seem like I was looking out over a river of clouds.
If you're in Leura, give this spot a visit! You won't be disappointed.
