You can admire the beauty of the blue mist, the spectacular cliffs and the bottomless canyons. Do not miss Katoomba, a breathtaking panorama of the Three Sisters and Jamieson Valley, which can be seen aboard the skyrail. You can also enjoy a walk in the Jurassic Rainforest as part of the Blue Mountains day trips from Sydney.
With an altitude exceeding 1,000 meters, this sandstone mountain range extends 260 kilometres from the north to the south, and covers 247 000 hectares. One Tree Hill is its highest point at 1,111 metres.
Walking is the main activity around the Blue Mountains, particularly in the area surrounding the Jamison Valley south of Katoomba and the Grose Valley east of Blackheath. Whether you are a novice hiker or more experienced, you will find a wide variety of itineraries, some taking several days. If you have time, do not miss the amazing and beautiful Jenolan Caves.
Located on the edge of the Blues Mountains National Park, Wolgan Valley is a popular World Heritage Site. This valley offers incredible landscapes featuring eucalyptus forests and mountains that give a bluish look to the landscape. Explore the trails and discover the unique flora and fauna. The Wolgan Valley Resort & Spa offers a rare chance to enjoy real luxury in a spectacular setting characterised by the beauty of Australian landscapes.
The Wentworth Falls Lake
The artificial Wentworth Lake was created in the early 20th century to supply water to steam locomotives. Today, the place is protected and offers an ideal setting for a sunny afternoon getaway. Picnics and barbecues are allowed as well as swimming. To get there, you need to take Blaxland Road and turn left into Sinclair Crescent. Follow the tree path to the lake.
