You’ll find one of Australia’s most magical, natural regions less than two hours west of Sydney, the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains. Characterized by a blue haze—the product of the natural oils from the area’s eucalyptus forests—the stunning beauty is breathtaking.
The area is a perfect escape from the busting city. With an endless variety of leisure activities to fill your days, and nature trails to suit all levels, it has something for the adventurer inside each of us. For a cultural experience, discover the region’s Aboriginal history and culture with guided walks, artwork exhibitions, and traditional performances.
Swain Destinations can steer you to the area’s picturesque towns and the best restaurants and hotels. A favorite of Swain’s advisors is the luxurious Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, which offers an array of nature activities in a serene setting, or check in at one of the Blue Mountains’ smaller boutique properties.
