Considered Australia’s ‘cradle of conservation’ and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Blue Mountains cover a million hectares of some of the most picturesque eucalyptus forests, sandstone cliffs, canyons, waterfalls and bush, not just in Australia, but in the entire southern hemisphere.
There are so many tours and attractions in the Blue Mountains it’s hard to know where to start. You can discover the ancient limestone crystal and underground caverns of Jenolan Caves, see the Three Sisters at Echo Point, look out over Wentworth Falls, visit the botanic gardens and ride the Skyway at Scenic World for jaw-dropping views of the wilderness.
Your choice of activities is governed by the time of year you come to the East Coast but waiting for you is a treasure trove of arts and culture, adventure sports, incredible dining experiences and amazing hotels to suit all budgets as well as some quiet villages and shops for those who like a slower pace of life!
The Blue Mountains will captivate you like very few places on Earth are capable of doing and your time here will stay with you long after you’ve – reluctantly – gone home.
