Blue Mountains

4.6
Cloaked by a natural blue haze that lingers above vast eucalypt forests and rugged sandstone tablelands, Blue Mountains remain Australia's most accessible World Heritage-listed wilderness within a two-hour drive from Sidney. Equally suitable for adrenaline addicts and avid nature lovers, a trip to Blue Mountains places you near canyons, waterfalls, underground caves, and limestone formations that date back at least 340 million years. Fresh mountain air serves as a perfect stimulus for numerous exhilarating activities and adventure sports. Hiking, bushwalking, rock climbing, canyoning, and abseiling rank among top things to do in Blue Mountains. The region's many festivals and rich Aboriginal heritage add a dash of culture to primarily nature-oriented Blue Mountains vacations. Blue Mountains is in New South Wales.

Message from Tourism Australia
With a blue horizon of eucalyptus trees that appear to stretch on forever, expect to be enchanted by the natural beauty of the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. Set out on foot to explore some of the 140 kilometres (87 miles) of walking tracks, admire the native bushland, marvel at the impressive rock formations and explore underground caves on a holiday centred around the outdoors. Listen to Dreaming stories told by local Aboriginal guides and admire the work of resident artists before retiring to a luxury retreat surrounded by wilderness. The Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area is about two hours drive west from the city of Sydney.
