Who were the three sisters? Why did Govett leap? Is the hydro truly majestic?
The Blue Mountains World Heritage region is known for its spectacular cliffs, dramatic changes of seasons, and its legacy of fire. It is still in a place where one wrong step can mean a frightful death, where illness might be cured and the quietly rich and famous seek respite from the city. This book uncovers some of the terrible stories that shaped the Mountains village life.
Hidden History of the Blue Mountains by Magda Cawthorne has over 500 full-colour photographs and bite-sized stories you will discover each village from Lapstone to Mt Victoria.
Leave it on the coffee table and you will be sure to pick it up over and over again to discover characters and crimes, celebrations for the changing seasons, secret places, and famous faces.
It’s the one book you need for your friends and family. If you are a visitor, it makes the perfect memento of your visit. You will be proud to own a copy, give it as a gift or send it overseas.
