You’ll be pitching your tent on a prime spot at Perrys lookdown campground on the western edge of Blue Mountains National Park. Take in the inspiring views of the famous Blue Gum Forest from Perrys lookdown as you whisper a thank you to the bushwalkers of the 1930s. They bought and reclaimed this magnificent stand of towering eucalypts for future generations.
