Blue Mountains

Travel alert: Flood-affected area

Motorists are being urged to reconsider their travel plans in certain areas of regional NSW, after floodwaters closed or damaged major roads and highways across the Central Tablelands, Central West, Orana and Far West. For the latest traffic updates on state-controlled roads and highways, call 132 701, visit livetraffic.com or download the Live Traffic NSW app, and always follow the directions of emergency service and road crews on the ground. For information on local road closures, visit the relevant council website.

A world of wonder

The Blue Mountains are justifiably world famous. And it’s not just those World Heritage-listed landscapes that draw people back. Grand gardens, fabulous food (much of it with equally fabulous views), crisp mountain air, heritage hotels, galleries and artisans, and a string of townships each with their own charm… there are few better places to disconnect from the world and reconnect with yourself.
