About the Blue Mountains

General Information about the Blue Mountains

The Blue Mountains is a mountainous region in New South Wales. It borders on Sydney's metropolitan area, its foothills starting approximately 50 kilometres west of the state capital.

The Blue Mountains are a popular destination for rockclimbers, mountain bikers and hikers as well as those interested in canyoning and other adventure sports. These sports are well catered for by guiding companies and equipment stores located mainly in Katoomba.

Mountain biking takes place mainly on the many fire trails that branch away from the main spine of the Great Western Highway, such as Narrow Neck, Anderson's Fire Trail and others. Likewise many of the fire trails are popular with day hikers, though many dedicated walking trails exist away from the fire roads.

Canyoning in the Blue Mountains is a popular sport and caters for various skill levels. It does carry with it inherent dangers but for those with the appropriate skills or those looking to take a guided trip there are many great opportunities to experience a different view of the Blue Mountains. There are also numerous abseiling options available in the Blue Mountains including single and multipitch routes.

There is always something going on in the Blue Mountains, from village festivals and flower festivals, to classic car meets, musical events, sporting events and markets. With picturesque villages, breathtaking views, and so much to see and do, the Blue Mountains are the perfect holiday destination for families, nature lovers, and adventure seekers.

Popular places to visit are the Blue Mountains National Park, the Jenolan Caves, the Three Sisters at Echo Point Lookout and the Govett Leaps Falls.
