A visit to the world-heritage listed Blue Mountains is a chance to savour breathtaking vistas, spectacular bushwalks and invigorating clean air. Guaranteeing you a fresh perspective, it’s easily accessible under two hours by car or train.
This dramatic mountain system begins approximately 50kms west of Sydney’s CBD, and is defined by spectacular landforms like the legendary “Three Sisters”, dense Eucalyptus forests and numerous delightful townships such as Leura, Wentworth Falls and Katoomba.
There are abundant bushwalking trails throughout the area, catering to all levels of experience and fitness, while it’s also a mecca for outdoor adventurers such as abseilers, rock climbers and mountain bikers.
With something for everyone, it also features attractions as varied as the famous Norman Lindsay Gallery at Faulconbridge and the Jenolan Caves, a series of limestone caves south west of Katoomba.
An inspirational environment, it is home to a vibrant artistic community, while also playing host to numerous festivals, musical events and markets.
