Sixty km west of Sydney, the Blue 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 247,000 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.

The park is also home to the Waratahs (Telopea speciosissima), the flora emblem of New South Wales. The waratah is best seen in late winter and early spring.
