One of the many great towns reroute through the Blue Mountains
From early September (springtime) the Blue Mountains is something to
experience with its blaze of colours and spectacular scenery that
attract visitors and photographers from around the world. From May,
the region changes to the autumn hues that can be seen in the
spectacular reds, yellows, gold and oranges leaves of the trees.
Mountains has long been renowned as one of the finest bushwalking
areas of the world with the cascading waterfalls, breath-taking
panoramas, rainforests, fern-filled gullies and the abundance of
flora and fauna. The Blue Mountains National Park includes more than
240,000 hectares of dissected sandstone plateau, forested river
valleys and deep gorges. The Park adjoins
Wollemi National Park to
the north and Kanangra Boyd National
Park to the south west, making
it one of the largest natural areas in NSW.
