The Aboriginal dream-time legend has it that three sisters, 'Meehni', 'Wimlah' and Gunnedoo' lived
in the Jamison Valley as members of the Katoomba tribe.
These beautiful young ladies had fallen in love with three brothers from the Nepean tribe, yet tribal
law wouldn't allow them to marry.
The brothers were not happy to accept this law and so decided to use force to capture the three sisters
causing a major tribal battle.
As the lives of the three sisters were seriously in danger, one of the tribal elders from the Katoomba
tribe took it upon himself to turn the three sisters into stone to protect them from any harm. While he had intended to reverse
the spell when the battle was over, he, himself was killed.
As only he could reverse the spell to return the ladies to their former beauty, the sisters remain
in their magnificent rock formation as a reminder of this battle for generations to come.
