A land of astonishing natural beauty named for its enticing blue tinge when viewed from a distance, the Blue Mountains attract thousands of visitors every year. It is one of the most popular day tour destinations from Sydney that offers stunning views of the World Heritage site, its wilderness and valleys, the Bridal Veil Falls and the Three Sisters. The Blue Mountains are also the perfect choice for hikers, rock climbers and active travellers.
The beauty of Blue Mountains is shrouded in a veil of mystery that includes a fascinating Aboriginal legend about the Three Sisters. These three majestic sandstone rocks towering above the Jamison Valley can be viewed up close from Echo Point. Their sheer size is incredible and their story even more so. The Waradah Aboriginal Centre is an experience in itself, where you get a glimpse into Aboriginal culture while enjoying dance performances and culture talks and experimenting with spear-throwing or playing the didgeridoo.
The Scenic Railway, Skyway and Cableway are three rides at Scenic World that epitomise the Blue Mountain experience. Glide above the Jamison valley in a large glass-bottomed cable car, ride the steepest passenger train down the valley and enjoy an invigorating walk along the longest elevated boardwalk in Australia before taking the cable ride back up! With Blue Mountains tour packages including all these also available, you can’t ask for more!
Not far from the Blue Mountains are the ancient Jenolan Caves, an underground network of limestone caverns. You can never be too young or old to experience the amazing cave tours and scenic bush walks there. You’ll also enjoy glimpses of Australian birds and animals in their natural habitat!
