Greater Blue Mountains

The Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area is a million hectares of national park and wilderness dominated by temperate eucalypt forest. The area supports exceptional biodiversity including a number of rare plants. It is also highly valued for its Aboriginal heritage and its outstanding geological features, such as 300m sandstone cliffs, slot canyons and waterfalls. Within easy reach of Sydney, visitors can take in the scenic views from lookouts or explore the wilderness via walking tracks or cycling trails.
