Three Sisters, Echo Point, Blue Mountains, New South Wales, Australia

The Blue Mountains get their name from blue haze caused by light being scattered by eucalyptus oil in the air. The Blue Mountains have been listed as a World Heritage Area.

According to Wikipedia "The modern day tourism industry has created a legend that says that three sisters fell in love with three men from a neighbouring tribe, but marriage was forbidden by tribal law. 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 falsely claimed to be an Indigenous Australian Dreamtime legend."
