The Blue Mountains is famed for its dramatic scenery including the rugged terrains, bewildering wildlife, waterfalls, temperate rainforests, canyons, lookouts and intriguing walking trails. People mainly visit here to witness the blue haze given off by the vast Eucalyptus vegetation and a trekking tour through the natural wonder, The Three Sisters rock formation. Other than walking off the trails and exploring the wilderness, the Blue Mountains is also a famous destination for rock climbers, mountain bikers as well as for canyoning , abseiling, 4WD adventures and other adventure sports. These are all well-catered by trained guiding companies and equipment stores located mainly in Katoomba. The adventure doesn’t end here as there are still other ways to explore and have fun in this vast range of mountain regions. The best way to get the most out of the area is to enjoy a day-tour here; visit the scenic world, meet the local wildlife, explore the Jenolan caves, savour a delicious lunch whilst overlooking Jamison Valley and even go home via the Sydney Harbour through a cruise. A New Year here would be one of the most unique experiences you can have as it is likely to be less crowded thus you can have the whole place to yourself and your people. You can even watch the impressive fireworks from various lookouts and viewpoints. So take a break from the busy city life and get back to nature to refresh both your mind and body.
