Immerse yourself in a World Heritage Area. Autumnal hues and mild weather make autumn an ideal season to explore the Blue Mountains, Lithgow and Oberon region and venture onto bush tracks in the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. A great all-weather activity at any time of year is a visit to Blue Mountains Cultural Centre at Katoomba. On display during April is the audiovisual exhibition Instance by Honi Ryan and Desire, a collection of works exploring how our desires create who we are. Experience humanity through the ages and even other worlds at the "festival with a metal edge", Ironfest at Lithgow (April 25-27). The annual festival brings together artists, designers/makers, blacksmiths, performers of all kinds, musicians, historical re-enactors and more. The beautiful National Trust property, Everglades Historic House & Gardens at Leura, will host a fabulous display of wedding dresses through the ages staged by The North Shore Cavalcade of History and Fashion (April 12). Explore the great outdoors with mushrooming in the state forests around Oberon, soak up the ambience of Sculpture at Scenic World and be sure to pay a visit to the many spectacular gardens throughout the Blue Mountains, Lithgow and Oberon region resplendent in autumnal hues including those at Mt Wilson, Blue Mountains Botanic Garden at Mount Tomah, Leuralla at Leura and Mayfield Garden at Oberon. And celebrate local and regional produce and sustainable living through the Autumn Sustainable Food Festival, with the TomahROMA launch event at Blue Mountains Botanic Garden on May 3, the Leura Harvest Festival (an incentive of Leura Village Association) finale event, on May 10, and other satellite events throughout the region in between. Commemorate Easter at a free non-denominational service in the Underground Group in the majestic setting of the Cathedral Chamber of the Lucas Cave at Jenolan Caves (April 20). Whatever you decide to see and do, be sure to fully immerse yourself in the Blue Mountains, Lithgow and Oberon region and treat yourself to a short stay at any number of accommodation providers to suit all budgets. Easy to get to. Impossible to forget.
