Why Are the Blue Mountains Blue?

A blue haze is formed from the combination of water condensation, dust fragments, and eucalyptus oils when they blend with light.


Thus, your eyes will see the blue of the light in the air.

And, you'll think and feel that the mountains are blue.


Stay at Katoomba in the Blue Mountains

Stay and participate in mountain activities.

You'll find bush walks, the Three Sisters, the rocks, and waterfalls. And explore the caves.

Three Sisters Walking Track


You can walk along the Three Sisters Walking Track amongst the tall trees. You will get a close-up view of the Three Sisters.

The sinking sun shines its light through the trees.


See below for things to do in the Blue Mountains. You'll find many walking tracks in the bush that you can take.


Now in the west the colours change,
The blue with crimson blending;
Behind the far Dividing Range,
The sun is fast descending.


And mellowed day comes o’er the place,
And softens ragged edges ...


~Henry Lawson
