A Colourful Place
The Blue Mountains is a colourful place for an entire palette of seasons. Every season brings with it a change of hues in nature as well as a range of unique festivals and events designed to reflect the beauty of the months.
There's Yulefest and Winter Magic in Winter, Leura Gardens Festival in Spring, Wild about Waratahs and the Rhodo Festival (as it is affectionately known) in Summer to list just a few of the colourful events.
World Heritage Listed
It's so special it is inscribed on the World Heritage list for its outstanding universal values.
The Blue Mountains is home to the Darug and Gundungurra aboriginal peoples who treasure their connections with the land - encapsulated in their stories and art, ceremony and song as well as knowledge of landforms, climate, plants and animal life.

Set within this natural wonderland, Blue Mountains City is the only 'proclaimed' city in the world located in a World Heritage Area. The city is a charming collection ofmountain villages and hamlets, home to just 75,000 people, each with its own style and character.
