Will & Kate's Breathtaking Blue Mountains Adventure
BLUE MOUNTAINS MAJESTY
Now that's a photo opp! The royal couple admire the glorious Three Sisters rock formation, whose name, according to legend, derives from three sisters who were turned to stone when they fell in love with men from another Aboriginal tribe.
ON THE UP AND UP
Helicopters, motorcycles – is abseiling next for daredevil Prince William? The Duke and Duchess get a brief adrenaline rush Thursday while observing the Mountain Youth Services group rappel down the cliffs at Narrow Neck Lookout in the Blue Mountains town of Katoomba, west of Sydney. "He was calm on the edge … He just stepped up to have a cool look over," Tim Williams of the Blue Mountains Adventure Company says of William getting a closer view.
SOME-BUNNY LOVES YOU
Duchess Catherine relies on her green thumb for a traditional tree planting of a Summer Red Eucalyptus to show support for families – including a group of girl guides – who lost their homes in bushfires in the Australian mountain town of Winmalee. The response? "Bravo," the girls cheered, before posing for photos with the royal couple on Thursday. "They're amazing people, bringing joy to a lot of people," one parent told PEOPLE.
