Sydney Sight Seeing

Sydney Blue Mountains, NSW

Nature lover or not, you are guaranteed to be awed by the lush and scenic Blue Mountains region. Classified as a world heritage area and named for the bluish mist that often shrouds the mountains in mystry, this popular tourist destination is only a few short hours away from Sydney and a perfect place to experience the aboriginal culture, as well as local wildlife via walkabout or bus tours.

 

 

Three explorers, Blaxland, Wentworth and Lawson got advice from the Aboriginals to stick to the ridges. They found their way to the rich fertile hinterlands and into a permanent place in Australian history.

William Cox built the first road across in 1814 and since then, the mountains have been a popular Sydney destination. There are three towns named after the early explorers, named appropriately, uh, Blaxland, Wentworth and Lawson.

The region is now classed as a World Heritage Area.
