Blue Mountains

Almost on the edge of Sydney, and visible on a clear day from the city's observation towers, the beautiful World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains are the perfect destination for an idyllic day trip from the hustle-bustle of downtown Sydney. Protected as a national park, the Blue Mountains reward visitors with the stunning scenery of rugged sandstone outcrops, cavernous valleys and towering eucalyptus forests, and the charming mountain towns are the focus of teashops and antique stores.

Take advantage of Scenic World's cable cars and tramways to see the best of the Blue Mountains, including the beautiful Three Sisters rock formation. Glide between clifftops and over the rainforest on the Scenic Skyway tram; descend into the Jamison Valley on the Scenic Railway, the steepest passenger railway; explore the tranquil rainforest along the Scenic Walkway and climb back to the top with unbeatable views on the Scenic Cableway.

A favorite haven of bushwalkers and rock climbers, the area offers outdoor pursuits, scenic drives, manicured gardens, leisurely shopping and pampering at spas and luxurious accommodations. Other attractions include the Zig Zag Railway, Norman Lindsay Gallery at Springwood and the Jenolan Caves.

Practical Info

Between Sydney and the inland town of Bathurst, the Blue Mountains are dotted with a scattering of picturesque resort towns including Blackheath, Katoomba and Leura.
