Welcome to the Blue Mountains, a natural haven of wilderness and beauty, located just a short drive west from Sydney CBD. This UNESCO World Heritage region is globally celebrated for its extensive and dense forested landscape, majestic mountains, pristine canyons and the iconic Three Sisters rock formation. Blue Mountains is an essential road trip destination for any nature enthusiast.
Travelling through the area by car gives you the flexibility to explore the region at your own pace. The drive to the Blue Mountains from Sydney takes about 90 minutes via the M4 and Great Western Highway. The scenic drive routes will take you through quaint villages and serene landscapes, with many picturesque lookouts, including the well-known Echo Point Lookout, from where you can have a splendid view of the Three Sisters and the Jamison Valley. For more adventurous spirits, a detour to the Jenolan Caves, the oldest open caves in the world, can be an added treat.
The Blue Mountains are not just about natural beauty, the region also boasts cultural heritage including aboriginal historic sites and charming hill towns. Heritage-listed places like the Blue Mountains National Park and Hydro Majestic Hotel increase the cultural charm. The drive from one side of Blue Mountains to the other is about 120 kilometres, taking approximately 90 minutes. However, spending a night or two in one of the charming hill towns can enhance your experience by allowing a more leisure time to discover and appreciate the rich biodiversity of this region.
