Positioned to the west of Sydney, the Blue Mountains is a great destination to enjoy a day trip, a weekend escape or a fun filled holiday with the family. From its natural beauty through to its vibrant cultural scene, there are more than enough way to keep the family entertained in this special part of New South Wales.
Get in touch with nature
Home to the Blue Mountains National Park, the Blue Mountains region offers plenty of opportunities to encounter the beauty of nature. Set off on one of the many scenic bush walks that weave their way through the area, cool off during warmer weather at Jellybean pool or stop by one of the spectacular lookouts scattered throughout the region. Experience the beauty of the Blue Mountains from a different angle during a visit to Scenic World or slow down, unwind and settle in for a picnic at the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah.
See the sights
No trip to the Blue Mountains would be complete without admiring some of the region’s iconic sights. From impressive rock formations through to sweeping valleys, there’s plenty to see and discover. Whether you take time to admire the Three Sisters and Jamison Valley from Echo Point Lookout, stop by Govetts Leap Lookout or plan a visit to watch the ethereal flow of Wentworth Falls, there’s natural beauty to amaze visitors of all ages.
Enjoy a taste of culture
Boasting a vibrant cultural scene, there’s more to the Blue Mountains than just its natural beauty. Introduce your family to the local Aboriginal culture at the Waradah Aboriginal Centre, explore one of the area’s great art galleries or introduce your little ones to the toys of your childhood at the NSW Toy and Railway Museum.
Serving everything from Italian cuisine through to Modern Australian fare, the Blue Mountains’ eateries offer something to suit almost every taste and budget. Whether you’re looking to cosy up in a local cafe, meet friends for lunch or settle into a family dinner, there are plenty of great dining options to choose from.
