The Blue Mountains to the west of Sydney formed a formidable barrier to westward expansion in the early days of the Australian Colony. Use the Blue Mountains Australian Travel Map to get your bearings. Today, the Blue Mountains and the Blue Mountains National Park form an excellent natural reserve in close proximity to Sydney city.

On the right (east) side of the Blue Mountains Australian Travel Map find Penrith. This is the western extent of the built up suburbs of Sydney. Many people who live in the Blue Mountains commute to the city daily. The rail service from Katoomba and the Blue Mountains towns further west is very good.

There is a lot of very good bushwalking in the Blue Mountains and the chances of seeing wildlife in the wild, especially at sunrise and sundown are excellent. To cover all the major points of the Blue Mountains in a single day, I suggest you take a day tour from Sydney.

The Blue Mountains National Park

Located about 81 Km (50 miles) to the west of Sydney, The Blue Mountains National Park is one of the most popular National Parks in Australia. It is quite irregular in shape, being set among townships, dissected by rivers and covering a rough terrain that is part of the Australian Great Dividing Range. This provides a lot of bushwalking and sightseeing activities.  The chances of seeing kangaroos in the wild are very high in this area, and the birdlife of the National Park is amazing.
