Blue Mountains

The Blue Mountains, called as such because of the blue haze that is created through the mountains, is an hour and a half drive from Sydney and an ideal holiday escape.

 

Hotels here tend to be unique and boutique – most 4 star or above and offering facilities catering mostly to couples, and some apartment hotels with family facilities. Many come to explore the Mountains themselves through various lookouts, the cable car, or to climb them.

The Blue Mountains Region is a collection of small villages that make up the beautiful Blue Mountains, a large mountain range known for its 'blue haze' through the treetops. This is a very popular holiday spot being so close to the city yet seemingly so far removed, with a very laid back village atmosphere and beautiful scenery to enjoy.

There are a range of activities to enjoy, or you could just simply relax and explore the boutique shops and restaurants in the villages that go up the mountain. The main commercial centre is Katoomba. Other areas include Leura and Wentworth Falls.
