Breathtaking panoramas of giant ravines, sandstone plateaus, piercing pinnacles, vast forests and cascading waterfalls, and journeys into 340 million-year-old cathedral caves, are the amazing highlights of this World Heritage wilderness, near Sydney.
The majestic Blue Mountains have lured travellers for decades. Named a World Heritage site in 2000, the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area contains eight national parks and protected areas, four internationally significant wetlands and a rich cultural tradition of some six Aboriginal groups dating back many thousands of years. More than 1,500 species of plants and a third of Australia’s bird species live in an area ten times older than the Grand Canyon. With luxury retreats, charming villages and towns, and a flourishing artistic community, it's easy to see why the Blue Mountains are a sanctuary for explorers, adventurers and those seeking tranquillity.
The World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains offer many exhilarating adventures and experiences, from walking trails and abseiling to golf and gardens. Deeply connected to Aboriginal culture, the Blue Mountains also offer wonderful insights into The Dreaming and indigenous heritage. Enjoy tours with Aboriginal guides on walking trails through the spectacular wilderness and see traditional dance and music.
The Blue Mountains are home to many committed chefs who create delicious dishes using fresh seasonal produce for which the area is renowned. But it’s not only the award-winning restaurants - boutique bakeries, artisan producers of fine foods, and farmers markets ensure the Blue Mountains have an abundance of great food. Influences include Asian, French and other European cuisine, but contemporary Australian is the typical menu choice attributed to the region.
Café society is thriving in the Blue Mountains. Enjoy quality coffee and tea as well as gourmet breakfast and lunch. For a relaxed sip, take a moment in this splendid panorama of mountains and forests, and enjoy the invigorating crisp air and the subtle natural fragrance of eucalyptus.
Shopping in the charming towns and villages is a delight. Artisan foods, fashion, memorabilia, splendid antiques and beautiful artworks can all be found in the Blue Mountains.
The majestic Blue Mountains are easy to reach from Sydney. Discover the region at your own pace by renting a car, or join one of the many tours that explore this World Heritage-listed wilderness. You can even take a train from Sydney's Central Station to the Blue Mountains - the trip to Katoomba is only two hours.
