Three Sisters @ Blue Mountains

Leave a comment

Three Sisters
These are the (locally) famous Three Sisters at the Blue Mountains national park at the town of Katoomba near Sydney Australia. The name originates from Aboriginal myth about three sisters being turned into stone.

The Legend of The Three Sisters
The Aboriginal legend of The Three Sisters has a few different interpretations as to how The Three Sisters rock formation came into being. The most reported Aboriginal legend explains the story of three sisters; Meehni, Wimlah, and Gunnedoo, who fell in love with three brothers from a neighboring Aboriginal tribe. It was forbidden by tribal law for the three sisters to marry the Nepean tribe brothers, which led to the tragic story of The Three Sisters. The Nepean brothers did not take the tribal marriage restrictions well and they decided to start a tribal war. The Aboriginal witch doctor of the Katoomba tribe feared for the lives of the three sisters and cast a spell to temporarily turn them to stone to protect them. During the battle, the witch doctor was killed, leaving the three sisters forever frozen in their stone form. Today, the legend is still passed down to explain the beautiful natural wonder of The Three Sisters rock formation in Katoomba.
