What more can be said about the world famous Blue Mountains, with it's escarpments and breathtaking scenery. Named after the blue haze created by the eucalyptus oil in the air above the mountain gum forests, the Blue Mountains offer wonderful opportunities for photography, with cascading waterfalls, breath-taking panoramas, gorges, 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 New South Wales, and a great region for photographs, as a reminder  of a special place.
