Three Sisters

MotelThree SistersThe motel is a short walk from Echo Point where there's a viewing platform. We say hello to the Three Sisters: Meehni, Wimlah and Gunnedoo.

Mt Piper Power Station

Coal fired power stationNo metersDelta's Energy Expo Centre offers hands on high-tech interactive exhibits (pcs) giving a clear insight into what electricity is, how it's made and how it is distributed.

The centre also had a renewable energy exhibit - currently off-line: somebody had walked off with the display indicators.




InnOberon is the highest town in the Blue Mountains. And it feels it. The temperature is down to 5C outside!

Accommodation for the night is at the Oberon Highlands Motor Inn, a short walk from the main drag. The owner suggests we try the RSL club for an evening meal.

At the RSL club, very much like a British Legion club, we sign each other in. (As you do!) Beer and food is served.

Snow fell - unusually rare for November.
