Nothing prepares you for the first time you see the Blue Mountains which have a blue tinge at certain times of the day.

The dramatic scenery and rugged mountain range has a blue haze due to tiny particles of eucalyptus oil in the air that reflects the sunlight creating a blue tinge.


Head to the look out for the full impact of this million-year-old landscape that’s home to the iconic Jenolan Caves and its nine show caves. There are fabulous walks including the family friendly Three Sisters Walk surrounded by soaring eucalypt forest. Stop and enjoy the views of the Three Sisters’ weather-eroded sandstone turrets.

Jump aboard the Scenic Railway, the world’s steepest incline railway and then head to the

glass-floored Scenic Skyway suspended 270 metres in the air, for fabulous views.


There’s loads of accommodation in the Blue Mountain villages of Leura, Blackheath, Katoomba, Medlow Bath and Megalong Valley. Cosy cabins, slick luxury boltholes,

heritage hotels and holiday rental houses are options.

Katoomba’s Carrington Hotel has lots of charm as does the Fairmont Resort, Blue Mountains, MGallery by Sofitel that’s on the rim of the dramatic Jamison Valley. Spicers Sangoma Retreat is set in bush luxury and Emirates One & Only Wolgan Valley resort, just outside the Blue Mountains, offers ultimate luxury.


Darleys at the beautiful Lilianfels hotel offers outstanding fine dining showcasing fresh local produce. It is a slow food vibe at Palette Dining in Katoomba while Silk’s Brasserie in Leura has a French twist.

Medlow Bath’s Wintergarden at The Hydro Majestic has wonderful views over the Megalong Valley.

There are lots of good coffee shops and pick-up fresh produce at roadside stalls and Bilpin’s The Local Harves, is stocked with goodies.

Travellers can pick their own fruit at Pine crest Orchard and Bilpin Springs Orchard.
