Soak up ancient indigenous culture at Waradah Aboriginal Centre and immerse yourself in art of all genres at Blue Mountains Cultural Centre at Katoomba.

On your way to the region, meet some furry friends at Featherdale Wildlife Park.

When you arrive in the area, enjoy hassle-free travel around the most famous sites and sights of Leura and Katoomba on the hop-on/hop-off Blue Mountains Explorer Bus or Blue Mountains Trolley Tours.

Just 60 minutes from Sydney CBD to the lower Blue Mountains and 120 minutes to the upper mountains, the Greater Blue Mountains region has never been more accessible to visitors.

Blue Mountains Attractions Group president Dave Robertson says: “The Greater Blue Mountains region has been a popular holiday destination for more than a hundred years. The tourism attractions businesses here today ensure the region is as fresh and exciting as it was then.

“This region is right on Sydney’s doorstep so is convenient for a daytrip but of course you can experience so much more if you stay for a night or three.”
