Blue Mountains

Blue Mountains in New South Wales

The Blue Mountains National Park features breathtaking scenery. The Blue Mountains derive their name from the fact that the gum trees release an oil into the air which reacts with the sunlight to produce a blue haze. Sydney people have long enjoyed the Blue Mountains as an ideal place to escape for a few days.
The Blue Mountains can be visited on a day tour, but it is recommended that visitors allow time for an overnight stay.
There is a wide selection of accommodation available in the mountains including top class resort hotels, luxurious guest houses as well as more moderately priced motels and bed and breakfast accommodation. The Blue Mountains is famous for activities such as bushwalking, golf and horse riding.
