Blue Mountains National Park

Visitors come from across Australia and around the world to experience the natural wonders of the Blue Mountains and explore the Blue Mountains National Park.

Home to more than one hundred species of eucalypts, hundreds of bird species, dozens of reptile and amphibian species, and countless rare and ancient plants, this pristine wilderness is one of NSW’s most famous natural attractions.

Grose Valley - Blue Mountains

The area has a rich colonial and Aboriginal past, and the park is part of the traditional country of Aboriginal people including Daruk, Gundungurra, Wiradjuri and Dharwal.

The Blue Mountains National Park is somewhat of an adventure tourism hotspot. Get your pulse racing with a huge range of adventure activities in the Blue Mountains National Park. Go 4WDriving, horseriding, mountain biking and adventure activities like canyoning, caving, abseiling, rock climbing and canoeing. If you're confident, head out on your own, if not, take a tour.

High n Wild Mountain Adventures - Empress Falls

If adrenalin-fuelled adventure activities aren't your thing, there are many beautiful picnic and BBQ areas throughout the National Park. You can find lakes and swimming holes, with any number of other natural wonders, just waiting to be discovered.

On the edge of the National Park is Scenic World in Katoomba, which attracts a huge number of visitors. With a Scenic Railway, Scenic Cableway, Scenic Skyway, and a Scenic Walkway, it offers a variety of ways in which to view the Blue Mountains.

You’ll find more information as well as downloadable maps on the NSW National Parks app.
