Blue Mountains: Fly high


The world heritage region of the Blue Mountains is made up of one million hectares of rainforest, plunging canyons, rocky crags and heathland. It takes its name from the blue haze which blankets the mountains, a result of gum trees' eucalyptus oil combined with dust and water vapor.

You can drive, take the train or opt for a guided tour from Sydney, 130 km away. If you're feeling particularly adventurous, head to the skies for Rosehill Heliport-based Sydney Helicopters' Blue Mountains pub tour, which touches down at various bars and country inns.
