Brief History of the Blue Mountains
Just less than two hours from Sydney brings you to Katoomba, the heart of the Blue Mountains and the edge of the wilderness.
Katoomba and the neighbouring towns and villages are clustered on a narrow plateau bordered by sheer sandstone cliffs overlooking a landscape of stunning beauty. At an elevation of 1017m the air is cool and clear. Seas of trees surround and about massive islands of rock, while deep valleys etched into the landscape by timeless rivers beckon the adventurer.
A short stroll will take you to breathtaking lookouts, while a network of walking trails gives you access to the wilderness.
