On Sydney's doorstep discover Australia's most accessible wilderness. The Blue Mountains World Heritage Area.
It is one of Australia's natural wonders. Stretching for over one million hectares the Blue Mountains is an inspiring mix of rainforest, canyons, tall forests and heathlands, combining eight individual conservation reserves - Yengo, Wollemi, Gardens of Stone, Blue Mountains, Nattai, Kanangra Boyd, Thirlmere Lakes and Jenolan Caves Karst Reserve.
It is a nature lover's paradise with an abundance of colourful bird and animal life, the greatest concentration of eucalypt diversity on the continent, and landscapes ranging from rainforest to heathland.
The dramatic sandstone cliffs and rugged canyons are an adventurer's paradise. One of Australia's best network of trails provide numerous bushwalking and mountain biking opportunities. For the less intrepid a series of lookouts provide some of Australia's best views within easy access of car parking facilities.
Exploring is easy. Local tour guides are experts on the local fauna and flora, and offer a range of tours to the region's most spectacular natural locations. Adventure tour operators provide canyoning, rock climbing, mountain biking, abseiling and bushwalking tours to those who want to push their limits.
