Your guide to Blue Mountains

All About Blue Mountains

Located in New South Wales, two hours west of Sydney, are the breathtaking Blue Mountains, a vast mountain range that combines waterfalls, soaring cliffs, and dense eucalyptus forests. The Blue Mountains get their name from the Eucalyptus trees that veil the mountain tops here. When the sun beams down on the trees and the oil released by the leaves mixes with water vapor, it creates the blue haze for which these mountains are known.

Nestled amongst the trees and tranquil wilderness of the Blue Mountains, you’ll find a collection of small mountain towns, including Bilpin, Katoomba, and Mount Wilson, that buzz with creativity inspired by the rich natural landscape. Visitors are drawn here to explore the many walking trails that span the region, discover what’s underground in the Jenolan Caves, and take a ride in a glass-floored cable car for sweeping views of lush valleys, thundering waterfalls, and dramatic rock formations. The Blue Mountains offers a distinct mix of natural and cultural history and rich, viridescent scenery. Learn about the region’s Aboriginal heritage through well-preserved rock art and engravings, a trip to the Waradah Aboriginal Center, or the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Blue Mountains

The Blue Mountains typically experience temperate spring and fall seasons — September through November and March through May — and boast bright sunshine, blue skies, and balmy weather, with rich shades of ochre and orange woven throughout the region during the fall. As many of the Blue Mountains’ sights and activities are outdoors, these seasons provide some of the best conditions for enjoying everything the region has to offer. You can expect temperatures to peak in December and warm weather to remain through February. Visiting the Blue Mountains during this time of year increases your chances of spotting the dazzling display of glow worms and fireflies illuminating the night skies with their stunning bioluminescent glow. Temperatures start to dip when fall turns to winter, so if you plan to visit between the months of June and August, be sure to pack extra layers to keep warm.

Top things to do in Blue Mountains

Blue Mountains Botanic Garden at Mount Tomah

Make your way to Mount Tomah, one of the mountain towns in the region, to explore the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden — the only botanic garden within a UNESCO World Heritage Area. The expansive, cool-climate garden spans 622 acres of alpine forests, wilderness, local fauna, and hundreds of plant species from around the world. Sweet scents and gentle birdsong accompany the spectacular, panoramic view of the Blue Mountains.

Leura Cascades

Pack some snacks and make the trip to Leura Cascades for a picnic amid the towering eucalyptus trees and a walk along Leura Falls Creek to Leura Falls. Several walking paths can be accessed from Leura Cascades, taking you through Leura Forest to Katoomba or along the cliff tops to Echo Point. The tracks can be challenging, but you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views of waterfalls and Jamison Valley.

Three Sisters Walk

Head to Katoomba to the unique Three Sisters rock formation, which soars over Jamison Valley and is of great cultural significance for the Aboriginal people. The paved walking path allows you to get an up-close look at the iconic Three Sisters and provides some of the best views in the Blue Mountains National Park. Make your way to the Echo Point Lookout viewing platform for stunning panoramic views. Along the walking track, you’ll encounter several lookout points, each offering scenic and sweeping views of the verdant landscape.
