Blue Mountains National Park

Blue Mountains National Park, just under two hours from Sydney, is one of most spectacular parks in state, if not country. Spread over 4 000 square miles, this ancient land impresses with temperate rainforests, beautiful cliffs, and vast valleys and plateaus. It is great spot for bushwalking, or hiking, with challenging and scenic walks for all levels of abilities, including families. There are so many walks in area, but few of my favourites include ruin Castle hike, Grand Canyon Walk, and Katoomba Falls Walk. Wherever you go, youll be impressed by stunning natural beauty of area-its hard to believe place like this exists so close to Sydney! If youre are planning trip, some highlights in area include Three Sisters formation at Echo Point, near Katoomba, town of Leura, with its cute cafes and gardens, Scenic World and Govetts Leap Lookout Point. If you are looking for outdoor adventures, there are impressive hiking tracks, adventures or cave exploration. Although there are many day trips from Sydney to Blue Mountains, it is worth spending at least weekend to really soak up atmosphere, enjoy scenery, and try some of bushwalks in area. Blue Mountains Can Easily Be Reached By Train Or Car From Sydney.
