Blue Mountains Events
The Blue Mountains is constantly abuzz with activities and events. Whether it’s a high profile sporting event, a live music performance or a comedy festival; there is always something going on at the Blue Mountains..
Spring allows visitors to enjoy the tranquillity of the mountains whilst marvelling at the stunning natural beauty that is rampant across the area. Highlight events this spring include the Bicentennial Festival of Walking, offering an extensive range of foodie, cultural and vigorous bushwalks through the area in October. Discover the region’s flora during the Leura Garden Festival, Wild About Waratahs and the Oberon and Villages Spring Garden Festival. Lithgow’s town centre is transformed for Halloween on 31 October, while the Lithgow Flash Gift Carnival attracts some of the country’s fastest sprinters in November.
The Blue Mountains is the perfect setting for a winter Christmas in July. Visit the mountains in winter to take part in events with rich Christmas food, live shows and fun, family-friendly activities.
The Blue Mountains is also an arts and culture hub featuring events for artists and creatives from all fields. Cultural events are a mainstay of the Blue Mountains and attract visitors from all over the state.
