The Blue Mountains is a rugged region west of Sydney in Australia’s New South Wales. Known for dramatic scenery, it encompasses steep cliffs, eucalyptus forests, waterfalls and villages dotted with guesthouses, galleries and gardens. Katoomba, a major town in the area, borders Blue Mountains National Park and its bush walking trails. Echo Point affords views of the storied Three Sisters sandstone rock formation. The region borders on Sydney's metropolitan area, its foothills starting about 50 kilometres (31 mi) west of the state capital. The public's understanding of the extent of the Blue Mountains is varied, as it forms only part of an extensive mountainous area associated with the Great Dividing Range. Officially the Blue Mountains region is bounded by the Nepean and Hawkesbury rivers in the east, the Coxs River and Lake Burragorang to the west and south, and the Wolgan and Colo rivers to the north. The Blue Mountains are a fantastic weekend getaway for those living in Sydney and Canberra.

The Blue Mountains make for the perfect holiday destination for families, nature lovers, and adventure seekers. Bushwalks abound in the region and are an excellent way to take in the natural attractions, with trails to suit all ages and levels of experience. Visit Scenic World in Katoomba to enjoy panoramas of the wilderness, waterfalls, valleys and rugged sandstone tablelands by cablecar or the famous scenic railway. Explore the ancient caverns of Jenolan Caves and discover limestone crystal and underground rivers deep within the mountains.

The Festival of Walking invites you to explore the Lithgow and Oberon regions in October. Explore the area’s natural beauty and Aboriginal heritage as you walk. Take part in the Six Foot Track Marathon and challenge yourself on the 45 km trail stretching across the Blue Mountains, from the historic Explorer's Marked Tree near Katoomba, to the Jenolan Caves.

The Blue Mountains Music Festival of Folk, Blues and Roots is held in in mid-March every year. See and hear world class musicians in an intimate and relaxed atmosphere. The festival also features market stalls with locally-made food, arts and crafts as well as performance workshops. Lithgow also celebrates Yulefest between 1 June to 31 August. The town, along with other areas in Oberon and the Blue Mountains, are transformed into an icy winter wonderland, where visitors can enjoy toasty fires, roast dinners and festive decorations in some hotels, motels and guesthouses.

The surrounding picturesque towns of Blackheath, Faulconbridge, Katoomba, Leura, Megalong Valley, Mount Victoria, Springwood, Wentworth Falls, Hartley, Lithgow and Oberon offer a great range of restaurants and accommodation.
