When it's time to clear your head and leave the city behind, head for the rustic charm of Perrys lookdown, near Blackheath. Gaze across the scenic Grose Valley while taking in that famous crisp mountain air of Blue Mountains National Park.

From the lookout, you'll see the imposing sandstone cliffs of Mount Banks, while the towering stand of eucalypts rising from the valley floor is the historic Blue Gum Forest, saved by bushwalkers almost a hundred years ago. While you're relishing the expansive views, look for yellow-tailed cockatoos and wedge-tailed eagles in the sky above.

If you find it too hard to leave, unroll the sleeping bag and stay overnight at Perrys lookdown campground. If you're feeling adventurous, head down into the valley along Perrys lookdown to Blue Gum Forest walking track for an invigorating hike through unspoilt wilderness.
