Blue Mountains Attractions

Attractions in the Blue Mountains

Named after the unique blue hue that sits over its surroundings, the Blue Mountains offers a varied range of attractions for visitors from nature and history, to shopping and adventure activities.

One of the largest Blue Mountains villages, Katoomba, is a great place to commence your visit, with access to the famous rock formation The Three Sisters, Scenic World and the Waradah Aboriginal Centre.

There are dozens of bushwalking trails to suit a wide range of ages and fitness levels. Some shorter walks have stairs and handrails, while others are more challenging and can take several days. The Pulpit Rock walking track begins to the left of Govetts Leap Lookout, passing scenic panoramic views of the Grose Valley before continuing onto Pulpit Rock Lookout. The Grand Canyon Track near Blackheath is a more challenging hike through luscious native vegetation, deep canyons and creeks. For more adventures try your hand at mountain biking, horseriding or join a Segway tour.

Admire one of the world’s oldest limestone cave systems at the Jenolan Caves, with access to guided tours, adventure caving and the chance to learn about local Aboriginal culture.
