Read This Before Visiting The Blue Mountains

Heading to the Blue Mountains is something that everyone should do at least once in their lifetime.

If you have never been there, it can be overwhelming trying to plan the perfect trip.

Taking this into consideration, we have come up with a quick guide to help you plan your trip to the Blue Mountains to make it all the more memorable.

Determine Your Itinerary 

There are many reasons to take a trip to the mountains. Two of the most popular are bushwalking and spending time enjoying food and wine.

If you are more interested in the former, you should stay in a hotel that is located near Echo Point. This will make it easier for you to hit the trails each day.

If dining and enjoying libations is your thing, then staying near the city centre is a better idea so you don’t have to over exert yourself when you are ready to have a meal.

Choose A Trail


If you are interested in hiking, there are three separate trails to choose from. At least one of them should be ideal for your skill level.

Here is a brief overview of each:

– Prince Henry Cliff Walk

This is a flat trail that is ideal for people of all skill levels.

– Three Sisters Walk

This is a moderate trail that does contain some steep steps. It is also great for people of all levels.

– Giant Stairway

This is 900 stairs that lead down into the forest. This should only be attempted by people who are in shape enough to ascend a large number of steps.

Arrange A Tour


If you are one of those people who are not adept at planning every part of a trip on your own, you should hire a tour company.

This will ensure you won’t miss anything that is considered an essential sight.

Even if you are someone who is pretty good at navigating things on your own, having someone else take the reigns can be nice for a change.


Pack Accordingly

When you are packing your bags, make sure that you consider where it is you will be staying.

If you are closer to a large town, you will not have to pack as much as there will be retail stores around in order to get everything you need.

On the flip side, if you are going to a location that is more remote, make sure that you pack all of the essentials, like extra socks, sleeping bag and water.

Avoid Storms


If you hear that there will be a storm, you might want to cancel your plans.

While weather reports tend to be pretty accurate in Sydney, they are a bit different in the Blue Mountains.

When they say you can expect some bad weather, you need to assume that things will be worse than what was stated.

For this reason, it is best to err on the side of caution and stay home if you hear that the weather will not be great on the day that you plan to take your trip.

There are so many things to do in Sydney, but there is nothing quite like spending some time in the Blue Mountains.

If you are looking for something fun and exciting to do when you have some time to spare, you should plan a trip.

You are sure to have a great time as long as you consider all of the pointers that we have discussed in this article.
