Blue Mountains National Park, one of the most well known parks in Australia, is part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area; listed for its remarkable geographic, botanic and cultural values, including protecting sites of Aboriginal cultural significance. This Eco certified park boasts more than 140km of trails and walking tracks and there are great places to go camping, including Euroka or Blue Gum Forest where you can pitch your tent beneath the shade of a majestic eucalypt.

Explore the park’s heritage tracks and lookouts, many of which were created for Victorian-era honeymooners and day-trippers. Imagine walking down some of the steep staircases and narrow tracks in a full suit or a dress with a bustle. Try the historic National Pass or take the clifftop bushwalk at Govetts Leap; a great walk for getting a sense of the land and spectacular views all the way down the Grose Valley. There are also great opportunities for adventure sports; challenging rock climbing spots, great canyons and horseriding.

The views from the park’s lookouts are magnificent; you’ll look out over hazy blue forests, waterfalls and interesting rock formations. Echo Point at Katoomba is a popular spot, offering full views of the iconic Three Sisters, and at Sublime Point in Leura, you’ll be able to see 29km away on a clear day. Take a picnic lunch or thermos so you can stop for a while to admire the view.

This park, which is part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, protects an unusually diverse range of vegetation communities. There are rare and ancient plants and isolated animal populations tucked away in its deep gorges. The Greater Blue Mountains Drive links a vast and spectacular World Heritage landscape and a number of national parks to the surrounding regions.
