The Blue Mountains is one of New South Wales most visited tourism destinations. The region is well known for its unique mountainous ranges, plateau escarpments, cascading waterfalls and hidden canyons. The quaint village feels and the breathtakingly beautiful scenery makes you feel far from the city.
