The Blue Mountains region is located west of Sydney, commencing just over 50 kilometres away from the city centre. From there, it stretches westwards from the Nepean River, spanning mountain ranges, gorges, caves, tablelands, forests, rivers and lakes. It is a declared World Heritage Area.

The main route through the Blue Mountains is the Great Western Highway which winds its way through a diverse collection of mountain villages and communities, brimming with art, culture and culinary delights. An alternative route for a Blue Mountains experience is the Bells Line of Road which offers stunning mountain scenery and passes through fertile farmland with roadside stalls selling fresh produce.

The Blue Mountains offers many natural attractions for visitors. Popular sights to see within the area include the famous Three Sisters rock formation which towers above the Jamison Valley, the network of limestone caverns known as the Jenolan Caves, and the stunning Wentworth Falls. Spectacular lookouts and walking trails are plentiful throughout this area of unique natural beauty.

The close proximity of the Blue Mountains to Sydney and easy accessibility via private or public transport makes it ideal for a day trip or short escape.
