Blue Mountains

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is less than two hours by car from Sydney but feels like another world. A majestic range of mountains, deep valleys and sandstone plateaus cloaked in a soft blue haze created by oils from the eucalyptus tree canopy, the national park makes a sterling day trip. Must-sees include the Three Sisters, a craggy triple rock formation (best viewed from lofty Echo Point); the magnificent Katoomba Falls; Govetts Leap Lookout; and the Jenolan Caves, limestone caverns with stalactites.
