Blue Mountains

Take a scenic three hour drive west of Sydney and discover the magnificent Blue Mountains, which were first crossed in 1813 by explorers Blaxland, Wentworth and Lawson. This World Heritage Listed National Park is recognised internationally for its incredible geographic, botanic and cultural values and boasts a stunning landscape of dense eucalypt forest, grand escarpments, waterfalls and cave systems.

The area is home to 90 different species of eucalyptus trees and the greatest and most diverse concentration of eucalyptus trees in the world. Ever wonder why the Blue Mountains are called blue? The air is filled with several finely dispersed droplets of eucalyptus oil. These oil droplets not only delightfully perfume the air, but combined with dust and water vapour; they scatter rays of brilliant blue light earning this spectacular mountain range its name.  

One of the most striking landmarks of the Blue Mountains is the amazing rock formation known as the Three Sisters. Each pinnacle stands at 922, 918 and 906 metres tall respectively. The best place to view of the Three Sisters is from Echo Point, a lookout perched on the edge of a 170 metre cliff face. Here you can learn about the Aboriginal dreamtime legend of the Three Sisters.

Travelling through the Blue Mountains you'll come across a number of quaint villages and towns such as the picturesque village of Leura. You'll notice many of the region's villages and landmarks are named after the European explorers Blaxland, Wentworth and Lawson who first crossed the rugged mountain terrain in 1813.

  • Climb into the mountains via the sleepy townships of Blaxland, Lawson and Wentworth

  • Visit Sydney Zoo, where you will see native Australian animals including dingoes, koalas, wombats, Tasmanian devils and echidnas in an open range, cage-free environment in the Australian Precinct. Kangaroos, wallabies and emus roam free for guests to interact with along the level pathways that lead to the Bungarribee Dreaming Experience which is delivered by Aboriginal guides. Hear dreamtime stories and learn about traditional tools, artefacts and bush tucker through interpretation within the talking huts in the Australian Precinct. Visit the underground Nocturnal and Reptile House and see bilbies and ghost bats as well as a wide range of lizards, insects, pythons and venomous snakes in a huge world class facility.
