World heritage site · Lookouts · Mountains
Cloaked by a natural blue haze that lingers above vast eucalypt forests and rugged sandstone tablelands, Blue Mountains remain Australia's most accessible World Heritage-listed wilderness within a two-hour drive from Sidney. Equally suitable for adrenaline addicts and avid nature lovers, a trip to Blue Mountains places you near canyons, waterfalls, underground caves, and limestone formations that date back at least 340 million years. Fresh mountain air serves as a perfect stimulus for numerous exhilarating activities and adventure sports. Hiking, bushwalking, rock climbing, canyoning, and abseiling rank among top things to do in Blue Mountains. The region's many festivals and rich Aboriginal heritage add a dash of culture to primarily nature-oriented Blue Mountains vacations.
