Katoomba, in the Blue Mountains, is about 85kms (about 52 miles) west of Sydney at an altitude of 950m (about 3,117ft). It is a major tourist attraction with its shear sandstone cliffs. The name Blue Mountains was given because of the blue haze when seen from the distance. This haze comes from sun reflecting on the minute particles of eucalyptus oil given off by the gum trees.
Bondi Baths. Swimming Pool. Sydney Australia. Sea water swimming pool favoured by two types of people: those who like a cement wall between them and things in the ocean that bite, and the Bondi Icebergs whose swimming season is throughout winter.
Starting with the 140m long waterslider and the flowrider, for body boards only, there are ten unique pools such as the Current Pool and the Wave Pool that can be enjoyed by everyone from families to couples.
