Enjoy a charming getaway with a traditional cabin or cosy B&B in the Blue Mountains
The Blue Mountains are a rugged mountain range and UNESCO World Heritage area located about 100km from Sydney in New South Wales, Australia. The mountain range gets its name from the distinctive blue haze created by thick eucalyptus forests in this area - tiny droplets of oil emitted from the eucalyptus trees mix with sunlight and water vapour to produce the bluish mist.
Here you will find numerous accommodation options including self-catering holiday homes, cosy B&Bs, and cabins featuring private pools, fireplaces, patios, kitchens and more. Hike the 140km of walking trails, admire the scenic bushland, explore the underground caves and discover the Aboriginal culture before retiring to a cosy holiday home in the Blue Mountains surrounded by wilderness.
Be enchanted by nearly 4000 square miles of sandstone cliffs, canyons, tall forests, and waterfalls that make up the incredible Blue Mountains. The Blue Mountains offer some of the region’s most dazzling natural attractions.
