Blue Mountains National Park Tours

Lush forests, breathtaking views and scenic mountain passes make Blue Mountains National Park one of the most well know and well visited attractions in all of Australia. In addition to its geographical beauty and biodiversity, Blue Mountains National Park also protects a number of sites significant to Aboriginal culture. Views are best from one of the major lookouts outside the park--between Wentworth Falls and Blackheath, but it’s still worth spending a day or two exploring the terrain and sights down below.

Experienced cyclists looking for an equally intense yet beautiful journey can ride the steep passes and gravel paths of Andersons Trail, then recover at Murphys Glen Campground. Those without wheels but game for a challenge can ascend the Blue Pool walking track, and take a refreshing dip in the cool swimming hole before heading to Mount Portal lookout. Avid trekkers will also enjoy the Cliff Top walking track. This challenging hike offers some of the best opportunities for local wildlife and incredible views of Grose Valley, too.

Less active visitors can still enjoy Blue Mountains National Park, since the area Heritage Center offers a look at Aboriginal culture and history. Even families can enjoy afternoon picnics at Gordon Falls.

No trip to Blue Mountains National Park would be complete without a visit to the Three Sisters. These imposing rocks are part of local legend and stand hundreds of meters tall. They are accessible by more than 800 steps, known as the Giant Stairway. Tired travelers can hop aboard the Katoomba Scenic Railway to avoid the even more exhausting climb from the valley.

Practical Info

Blue Mountain National Park is located about 90 minutes outside of Sydney and accessible via the Great Western Highway. Cars must pay a $7 entry fee. Visitors can travel by train via stations in Blackheath, Glenbrook, Katoomba, Leura, Mount Victoria and Wentworth Falls. The park is open year round, but wet weather keeps most travelers away during the month of February.
