Seek adventure in the blue haze of the Blue Mountains. You can join a daily tour from Sydney to Katoomba and Jenolan Caves to enjoy a ride on the world’s steepest passenger railway and enter this ancient rainforest. There is a certain uninhabited charm about spending some time amongst waterfalls, valleys and craggy sandstone tablelands.
Set your adventurous spirit wild and free with rock climbing, abseiling and hikes across rugged pathways. Don’t forget to explore the region’s Aboriginal heritage and visit the Jenolan Caves to marvel at limestone crystal formations and underground rivers.
Fact – The natural blue haze of the mountains comes from the droplets of oil from eucalypt forests mixing with water vapour and sunlight
