The Blue Mountains

The Blue Mountains is a must-see destination when visiting Sydney. The Blue Mountains region is 1.5hrs west of Sydney.  Over one million hectares of World Heritage-listed bushland. More than 140 kilometres of walking trails. The Blue Mountains is densely populated by Eucalyptus trees. The atmosphere is filled with droplets of oil, which, in combination with dust particles and water vapour, scatter the light, giving them blue haze.
