Blue Mountains Accommodation & Tourism Association Official Website

The Blue Mountains is a must see destination for any visitor to Australia. Over one million hectares of World Heritage-listed bushland. More than 140 kilometres of walking trails. Hundreds of bird varieties, dozens of reptile and amphibian species and mammals found on no other continent. All on the doorstep of Australia’s biggest city, Sydney, making the Blue Mountains Australia’s most accessible wilderness area.


The views are seemingly endless blue-hazed valleys, golden sandstone escarpments, plunging waterfalls, deep, fern-filled canyons, lush pine forests and rolling pastoral lands.


The fresh mountain air and the dramatic beauty of the region create a sense of peace and space. But you can challenge yourself too, climbing, caving, canoeing or hiking through the soaring terrain.


Luxury abounds in the region. The tranquility and natural beauty invites you to relax and enjoy the many health, beauty and rejuvenation treatments on offer. Many villages in the region offer award winning restaurants, cafés, boutique shops, antique emporiums and galleries. The vibrant arts community includes some of Australia’s best painters, sculptors, musicians and writers. The Blue Mountains also links Australia’s centuries old Aboriginal culture and that of its pioneering European settlers. As such it’s a perfect place to explore history old and new — visiting Aboriginal cave paintings, sharing stories of the dreamtime with local Aboriginal guides and walking roads and bridges first carved out of the bush by convict labour.


The Blue Mountains region is less than two hours from Sydney by car, coach or train.
