Major Attractions


These are the big guns, the unmissable sights and activities that you simply must see and do when you are in the Blue Mountains.

No visit to our World Heritage-listed wilderness is complete without staring in amazement at the incredible rocks and formations that make up this ancient landscape. Ponder the legend of the Three Sisters as you gaze out at the hazy blue horizon at Echo Point; or take a more active exploration on a hike through the Blue Mountains National Park that stretches for more than one million hectares.

To get between the tourist hotspots, jump on board the distinctive red double-decker Blue Mountains Explorer Bus, with 32 stops at waterfalls, lookouts, villages and attractions.

There’s more to our National Park than just the well-known sites such as Wentworth Falls, Jamison Valley and Govett’s Leap. Continue west past Mount Victoria to the Hartley Historic Site, one of the best-preserved heritage villages in the country; or relive the gold mining days at fabulous Hill End.

For more than 70 years, Scenic World has been welcoming visitors to its beautiful escarpment location, with the world’s steepest passenger train a perennial favourite along with the Scenic Skyway that dangles over the Jamison Valley.

Two other natural wonders that must be seen to be believed are the world’s oldest and most spectacular limestone caves, Jenolan Caves, and the glorious seasonal colour of the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden.

Visit our natural wonderland and be inspired!
