The Blue Mountains get their name from the natural blue haze created by vast eucalyptus forests in this World Heritage area. Marvel at this wilderness region from cliff top lookouts. Explore waterfalls, valleys and rugged sandstone tablelands, and learn about the region’s ancient Aboriginal heritage. Deep inside the Jenolan Caves you’ll discover limestone crystals and underground rivers. There are numerous activities on offer in the mountains, from rock climbing and abseiling to guided walks. It’s just two hours by train from Sydney’s Central Station to Katoomba, where you’ll find buses to some of the leading attractions, such as Scenic World’s cable car. Alternatively, just take a car for the two hour scenic trip.
