The Blue Mountains in New South Wales embraces 26 townships in an area of 1,433 square kilometres. The townships are situated from 50 to 120 km west of Sydney and are within 1,000 square kilometres of this World Heritage listed National Park.
The Blue Mountains was declared a World Heritage park in November 2000. It was nominated for its outstanding natural values, including the biodiversity of its plant and animal communities, its vegetation, which is dominated by Australia's unique eucalypt's, and for the beauty of its natural landscapes.
The region offers a myriad of activities for the visitor from bush walking, to browsing for antiques, adventuring through lime stone caves, with the Jenolan Caves with its 40 kilometers of multi level passageways as a spectacular example, enjoying the native gardens, travelling on the zig zag railway, taking one of the many Eco Tours or just lazing about one of many tranquil townships dotted throughout the region.
Stay at accommodation within the Blue Mountains at Katoomba, Leura or Wentworth Falls and enjoy early morning scenic walks, breathtaking views and clean crisp fresh mountain air.
