Nature beckons in the Blue Mountains, and charming hotels and guesthouses are perfect for relaxing in style after a bushwalk in the World Heritage National Park*. It’s a perfect mix.

If you are looking for the quintessential Blue Mountains experience you will be spoilt for choice.

I’ll be posting on some of the lesser known gems so keep an eye on this site. Meantime you can find information on websites like the Blue Mountains Visitor Information site and These sites are not exhaustive, but are definitely a good start.

You might also like to think outside the square—the Blue Mountains is home to some wonderfully talented artists who conduct tours and workshops which might be perfect for your guests visiting the Mountains. For example Gary Hayes Photography runs themed workshops for people wanting to take beautiful landscape photographs in the Mountains.  (Gary took the beautiful waterfall image on this website).

The Blue Mountains hosts many festivals every year – and you can find the Festivals Calender here in case you want to coincide—or sidestep the crowds by choosing a quiet time!

*The Blue Mountains was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 2000.
