  • Exploring Blue Mountains near Sydney

    Blue Mountains Australia

    The Blue Mountains is one of my all-time favourite locations for a day trip from Sydney. It is very rare to have a city to have a number of beautiful beaches and an amazing mountains range at a one-hour driving distance. The region is home to blue gum trees. The smoke from the burning of these trees creates a bluish-grey mist which is visible from a distance. This is where this region earns its name as "Blue Mountains".
