Sublimely beautiful, the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains region is one of the most spectacular parts of the country and has been described as Australia’s most accessible wilderness, yet it rivals any part of regional Australia for attractions, art galleries, cosmopolitan cafes, craft shops, fine dining and grand hotels.

Just 90 minutes from Sydney by car, two hours by train, the Blue Mountains has some of the country’s most dazzling natural attractions. With dramatic views over the deep valley troughs gouged out over millions of years, the lookouts at Wentworth FallsGovetts Leap and Echo Point are among the most popular while the views from Sublime PointNarrow Neck and Cahills Lookout are no less spectacular including the thousands of hectares of pristine wilderness with an abundance of native fauna and flora among rainforest canopies and stands of flowering eucalypts.

Made up of a chain of villages, each with its own charm and unique appeal, the Blue Mountains is also a living museum of Aboriginal and Colonial Heritage. In the villages you will find cool climate and magnificently landscaped gardens.

Leura's pretty tree lined main street is great for wandering and people watching. Stroll through the village and browse fashion boutiques and bric-a-brac stores. There are a number of galleries and bookstores as well as lovely parks, gardens and golf courses to enjoy.

Throughout the year there are many community festivals celebrating the seasons, the arts and the great outdoors.

From the foothills that rise above the Nepean Valley in the east to the sometimes snow covered western plains; there is something for just about everyone in the Blue Mountains, whether you come for a day or longer.

The Blue Mountains is Australia’s ultimate World Heritage wilderness destination. There is no shortage of Blue Mountain activities and sightseeing attractions. You can explore some of the most ancient and beautiful landscapes in the world and enjoy a wealth of regional activities.
