Favourite Cities and Hotels in Australia

Just west of Sydney, the Blue Mountains of New South Wales contain spectacular beauty. The approximately 75,000 people who call the region of Blue Mountains home are truly a fortunate lot. They reside in one of the most pristine regions of Australia, with precipitous valleys, sandstone plateaux, steep cliffs and scores of lakes and rivers on the doorstep. Indeed, the topography is so singular that in 2000, the Greater Blue Mountains Area became a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Home to incredible biodiversity, the Blue Mountains represent what makes Australia so special. With unusual fauna, exotic flora and ephemeral microclimates, the Blue Mountains area is well worth the short trek from Sydney. Aside from the region of Blue Mountains, the area also contains the Three Sisters rock formation of Blue Mountains National Park, impressive Jenolan Caves, Gardens of Stone National Park and Thirlmere Lakes. For great views of the region's famous blue haze, head to Jamison Valley.

Breathtaking Blue Mountains

Gaze though the blue-hazed peaks of the dramatic cliffs and canyons that spread across the horizon in the dense beauty that is the Blue Mountains. Close enough to Sydney for a day trip (a mere 100km to the west), but far enough into the wilderness that you will never want to leave. ... Read more »

Explore a town that is bursting with history on the Katoomba Heritage and Art Walk, discover the home of ‘The Magic Pudding’ (and pick up a watercolour) at the Norman Lindsay Gallery and Museum, or be blown away as the secrets of the Blue Mountains are revealed on the big screen (and when we say ‘big’ screen, we mean six-storeys-high big!) at The Edge Cinema in Katoomba. There’s also charming Leura, with its antique shops and teahouses, and a range of nature walks for people of all fitness levels.
