The Three Sisters are a set of three closely-spaced sandstone pillars on the edge of the Blue Mountains plateau 110 km west of Sydney. They overlook the Jamison Valley, whose floor is over 300 m below them. Their name is derived from an Aboriginal legend which speaks of three sisters, Meeni, Wimlah and Gunedoo who were turned to stone. You can just make out some people on a walkway at the left pillar.
