The premier attractions of the Greater Blue Mountains are located within one of the most spectacular and famous destinations on the planet – the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area.
The 1.03 million square hectares of wilderness made the World Heritage List in 2000.
In 2008, the area was given further recognition, being officially declared one of Australia’s 16 National Landscapes, the Tourism Australia/Parks Australia program which aims to “identify the best of Australia’s national and cultural landscapes – inspirational destinations that transcend borders and boundaries”. It is a partnership between conservation and tourism.
The Greater Blue Mountains is Australia’s most accessible wilderness, encompassing an inspiring and diverse mix of rainforest, canyons, tall forests and heathlands. The Greater Blue Mountains offers scenic beauty across diverse landscapes like towering sandstone cliffs and rugged canyons to cascading waterfalls and spectacular caves. The region is also home to the famed “dinosaur tree”, the Wollomi pine.
The Greater Blue Mountains contains seven national parks and is home to six Aboriginal language groups – the Wiradjuri, Gundungurra, Dharawal, Darug, Darkinjung and the Wanaruah. It supports more than 100 of the world’s eucalypt species and more than 400 kinds of vertebrates including mammals, birds and reptiles.
