Blue Mountains Accommodation & Tourism Association Official Website

Less than two hours from Sydney, the Blue Mountains is Australia’s most accessible World Heritage listed wilderness.

Motorways provide direct road links from Sydney in less than two hours.

The Regional Map shows road links to the Blue Mountains from all surrounding areas.


Trains regularly depart Sydney’s Central Station for a wonderfully scenic two hour journey through the heart of the region.

Private tour operators provide transfers and customised tours in limousines, 4WDs, mini-buses and even on Harley Davidsons.

Coaches depart Sydney CBD daily for day trips or overnight stays.



Once you are in the region it is easy to travel around. If travelling by car pick up a map from an accredited Visitor Information Centre and you can discover some of the region’s hidden secrets that lie off the beaten track. There’s also hop-on, hop-off tourist bus services linking key attractions. Make sure you explore the award winning touring route — The Greater Blue Mountains Drive (see maps & ITINERARIES).
