GREATER BLUE MOUNTAINS DRIVE
The Greater Blue Mountains Drive - Your Journey into World Heritage, is a network of touring opportunities you can tailor to your own interests and timeframe - be it two days or two weeks!
The Drive comprises a core route encircling the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. It connects the regions that share the world heritage area as their own backyard. When you are ready to leave the highway, take one of the Drive's 18 Discovery Trails to access your choice of the world heritage attractions. Most of the trails are designed to be done in a single day from a base in a regional centre. Set off to do just one trail, or link them together in an extended touring experience across the world heritage area.
A Map and Touring Guide are available from the Visitor Information Centres or you can download the 'Trail Notes' from the website.
