The breathtaking scenery of the Blue Mountains
While the Blue Mountains is world famous for its spectacular natural attractions, there’s far more to discover in and around its historic mountain towns.
Just a few hours’ drive from Sydney, the Blue Mountains is home to a collection of small towns that will capture the hearts of nature and culture lovers alike. Katoomba is the Blue Mountains most visited town and is a great starting point to take in some stunning scenery, as well bask in the village’s Art Deco splendour.
Then, the aptly appointed ‘garden village’ of Leura. Nature lovers will delight in Leura’s manicured gardens, tree-lined mall and variety of bush walks. The mountain’s highest village, Blackheath, is also a must-visit and is renowned for its antique shopping and cultural hub.
We hope you’re feeling up for some fresh mountain air and old-fashioned village charm, because the Blue Mountains is ready for you to explore, and we’ve compiled a list of the region’s must-dos.
