"A STAY IN THE BLUE MOUNTAINS" Top 5 Page for this destination Katoomba by BerniShand

Katoomba Travel Guide: 125 reviews and 334 photos

The mountains are blue because when the sun shines on the gum trees the air gets a blue haze when the oils are released from the leaves.........of course you see this in many parts of Australia, but the Blue Mountains are an ideal place to see it, and a beautiful place to visit

The Blue Mountains are a UNESCO World Heritage Area

Katoomba is the largest town in the Blue Mountains, but it still feels like a small town, it has great facilities for hikers and visitors, and is a great base for exploring the area

    Great tips, Berni! :-) I'll be visiting Katoomba next week. Not sure whether I'll have a couple of days there or try and cram it into a daytrip from Sydney. Looks very nice, but I guess it's a fair bit colder than Sydney!
