The Blue Mountains
A trip to New South Wales would not be complete without a visit to the Blue Mountains. Less than two hours from Sydney by road or train, the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains are one of the country's most spectacular icons. The picturesque towns of Blackheath, Faulconbridge, Katoomba, Leura, Megalong Valley, Mount Victoria, Springwood, Wentworth Falls, Hartley, Lithgow and Oberon afford breathtaking views, a wide variety of restaurants, accommodation and so many fun things to do. And for a one-of-a-kind experience, don't miss Jenolan Caves.
Bushwalks abound in the region, and there are trails to suit all comfort levels. When you've had enough walking and fancy a spot of shopping, you'll find quaint gift shops featuring confectionary, Australiana, fine art, books, antiques and more.
There's always something going on in the Blue Mountains, from village festivals and flower festivals to classic car meets, musical events, sporting events and markets.â¨The Blue Mountains make for the perfect holiday destination for families, nature lovers, and adventure seekers.
