Rainy & cold morning
Vet for the big animals
Its kinda boring to sit at the bus and travel for 2 hours long~~~Sleepy~~~
and finally we reach Waradah Aboriginal Centre. 1st impression, why do you bring us into a small mall? What they gonna do inside? ask us to purchase thing just only 2 days arrival?
1st-ly, we saw few of the ''Orang Asli'' dressed performer, taking picture with all off us with the equipment they provided such as hairy coat, boomerang, and so so on. Then they give us one thing look like a rubber band with some beads on it as an entry ticket to their shows.Once we entered the theatre, they dimmed of the lights and the performance begin.
They talk about who is their ancestors, why they are here, why they are getting lesser & lesser.
Show us how their traditional equipment works, how their musics sounds like and how they dance & communicate with each other. Me and my husband was being invited to head above the stage to have fun with them. Me to dance the ostrich dance and my husband to dance the Kangaroo dance. Nice experience but I didn't taken any photos of it [TOO BAD]
After the performance, they are guiding us to their art gallery & shops. Looking around but didn't buy anything at last.

After evverything is done here, we are heading to the Echo Point - Lookout point, Its very near with the Waradah Aboriginal Center, just 5 minutes walk then we arrived.Thanks god, its sunny here im able to catch some pictures here.

Its quite cloudy, weather is not predictable

The 3 Sisters Rock is the main character here, but end up, i didnt take any pictures of it. [Need to study more before travelling]

Hungry~~~ is time to fill up our tummy, heading to Katoomba Street, few Kilometres away from the lookout point.

Very special ceiling & chandelier

Utensils placed nicely
~~~ Burb ~~~ full and continue to go, Owh God, raining outside, need to run to out bus that parked opposite the restaurant. A little wet & cold definitely. Brrom, start the bus and we are heading to the Scenic World. Only 5 minutes driver from the place we had our lunch.

We had been provided with 3 ride passes. The Skyway, Cableway & Railway tickets.
Once entry, the place look like a mall to me And out tour guide is bringing us to the Railway station, lining up and its super cold up there, its mountain and also like a jungle to me. Lined almost 20 minutes, finally reached our turn.Going in, cages locked and up we go.

Regret it, many other place sell cheaper than the Scenic World
End up our day at the Scenic World, skies has been dark and the driver is abit mad, cuz we are late and making him waited for so long.On the way back to sydney, he is kinda pissed off, He drive kinda fast and the traffic is a little heavy actually.
