Summer is the ideal season to explore the Blue Mountains, Lithgow and Oberon region and venture onto bush tracks in the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area.
A great all-weather activity at any time of year is a visit to Blue Mountains Cultural Centre at Katoomba. Showing during September and November is BRETT WHITELEY: WEST OF THE DIVIDE.
Curated by Wendy Whiteley and the Art Gallery of NSW, this exhibition focuses on the enduring connection that Whiteley had with the region west of the Great Dividing Range and features 35 works including painting, sculpture and drawings that span three decades of the artist’s career.
Artists from around the world have been invited to submit applications to the annual Sculpture at Scenic World 2015 – Australia’s only rainforest exhibition.
Now in its fourth year, Sculpture at Scenic World will exhibit from April 15 to May 10, 2015. The call for submissions follows Scenic World’s commitment to extend the outdoor exhibition for at least three more years after the success of the past three events.
Explore the great outdoors with mushrooming in the state forests around Oberon, soak up the ambience of Sculpture at Scenic World and be sure to pay a visit to the many spectacular gardens throughout the Blue Mountains, Lithgow and Oberon region resplendent in autumnal hues including those at Mt Wilson, Blue Mountains Botanic Garden at Mount Tomah, Leuralla at Leura and Mayfield Garden at Oberon.
Whatever you decide to see and do, be sure to fully immerse yourself in the Blue Mountains, Lithgow and Oberon region and treat yourself to a short stay at any number of accommodation providers to suit all budgets.
Easy to get to. Impossible to forget.
