Blue Mountains Accommodation & Tourism Association Official Website

Maybe it’s the clear air, the sharp light, the dusky blue beauty of the mountains themselves. Whatever the reason some of Australia’s most renowned artists and quality galleries have chosen to establish themselves within the Blue Mountains.

The art on show in the Blue Mountains Region is incredibly varied. There’s a vibrant community of artists, writers, composers, sculptors and performers.

Discover local talent in galleries and museums or browse in craft and antique shops offering everything from handcrafted jewellery to photography, textiles and paintings.


Yet there’s more to the region than museums and galleries. Here you can not only admire the art, you can also meet the people who make it. You can watch local artists, musicians and artisans because in the Blue Mountains Region, art is inspired by every valley and cliff top.


All the types of music you could wish for can be found in the mountains - jazz, classic rock, folk and world music. Many of our well known hotels have regular concert series and music evenings. Please look at the What’s ON section of this site to find out what is happening when you plan to visit.


You can also view art almost as old as the mountains themselves - Aboriginal rock art that has told the stories of the dreamtime for centuries; see some for yourself at Red Hands Cave, Glenbrook or Black Fellows Hand Rock Art Site en-route to Wolgan Valley. Or let an Aboriginal guide lead you to more secret locations and tell you the stories first hand.
