Blue Mountains

The Blue Mountains is a region to the west of Sydney, showcasing majestic scenery and aboriginal culture. There are a number of towns and national parks within the area that cater to the traveler and offer breathtaking views. The lower cities are more an extension of Sydney’s urban area, but those up higher have a more mountain way of life. Due to its close proximity to the city, the region is easily accessible by car.

The attractions of the Blue Mountains are easy to find as it is every square inch of land in the area. But there are some specific sites and areas that should be visited. Katoomba is the largest and most visited town of the region, and it hosts Echo Point, Scenic World, and shopping. Mount Victoria is the highest point in the mountains, and Medlow Bath has the Hydro-Majestic and views along the Megalong Valley. These destinations are found up in the mountains. Within the lower areas are Springwood, the second largest community after Katoomba, and Glenbrook, an excellent destination for those who want a quiet getaway with access to bushwalks and swimming holes. Other than the towns, top attractions include the Zig Zag Railway, the Giant Stairway, the Three Sisters, and Wentworth Falls.

Accommodation in the Blue Mountains range from camping to resorts. A large selection is available in Katoomba and Blackheath, and many more are scattered throughout the area with most being within the vicinity of at least one of the region’s attractions.
