THREE SISTERS DECLARED AN ABORIGINAL PLACE

The Three Sisters at Katoomba in the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area is slated to become the 98th Aboriginal Place to be declared in NSW.

The Three Sisters at Katoomba in the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area is slated to become the 98th Aboriginal Place to be declared in NSW.

Joining in the announcement, Heritage Minister Robyn Parker and Blue Mountains MP Roza Sage said the declaration recognises the special cultural, social and historic significance of the world famous site to the Aboriginal community.

“The Three Sisters are significant to Aboriginal culture as a mythical place of legends and stories,” Ms Parker said.

“The area down into the valley below the Three Sisters was used as a ceremonial space with legend telling how they came to be the land formations commanding a view of the valley in traditional times.

“The area is highly valued by the Aboriginal peoples of the Gundungurra, Wiradjuri, Tharawal and Darug nations for its majestic land formations, incredible views across the ranges and down into the valley to the Kedumba River below,” Ms Parker said.
