Blue Mountains National Park is one of the most iconic parks in the entire country – and is a great day out for the whole family!
There is so much to see and do here, most people actually make weekends of it. First and foremost kids and families come here for the hiking. The walks are very in difficulty, and take you past some pretty incredible sights, like the famous Three Sisters. There are even wheelchair accessible tracks so everyone can enjoy them. There are about 15 different areas you can walk in, each area with up to 10 tracks within them – so you won’t be short on choice! The walks range from 30 minutes to 5 hours, so completely perfect for any family of any fitness level.
The famous Scenic World Blue Mountains operates all through the year – even in wet weather so don’t let a little rain stop you!
Don’t know what the Scenic World is? Well, it is the steepest incline railway in the WORLD! There is also the Scenic Skyway which is where you will be suspended above the valley floor! Eeek! We would tell you to not look down, but the view is incredible!
A lot of the parks heritage tracks and lookouts were created for the Victorian-era day trippers and honeymooners, so there is a ton of fascinating history to uncover during your time there. Can you just imagine walking down those steep staircases and navigating those narrow tracks in a full suit or a dress with a bustle!? We couldn’t!
If you love a bit of adventure, then make sure you don’t miss the adventure sports. Rock climbing, horse riding, and deep canyons await you!
On a clear day, you can see 29km away, so get ready to see some incredible views!
