Blue Mountains

Feel on top of the world in the Blue Mountains. Sydney’s backyard is a rugged range of mountain peaks tinged with a soft indigo hue.

Put on your hiking boots and take on the bushwalking trails in the national park. Eucalyptus woodlands cling to the steep escarpments and waterfalls tumble down sandstone crags, providing inspiration for the region’s artist studios and galleries. Little towns nestled into the foothills offer laid-back guesthouses, great dining and valley views.
