Traveling to the Blue Mountains

A Visit to Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Sydney

Tuesday 04, September 2012

When you think of Australia, you think of the big cities, the Sydney Opera House, downtown Melbourne, and you think of the Outback. Visit Katoomba and you'll see a whole other side of Australia.

With a population of around eight thousand people, Katoomba rests in the Blue Mountains, one of the most breathtaking parts of the country. You may think of the deserts and the cliffs and the beaches when you think of Australia, but the Blue Mountains are more akin to the landscapes of Oregon and Washington. Lush, green and gorgeous.

Something of a resort town, Katoomba is a great spot to visit on your trip to Sydney. Stop by in town for lunch and then take the cable Skyway across Jamison Valley, or hike the famous Six Foot Track, which takes you to the Jenolan Caves and across the Megalong Valley.

While much of the town is home to workers in the tourism industry (alongside retirees, artists and those living alternative lifestyles), Katoomba has actually been pretty resistant to development, even with the increase in visitors in the last year or so. This increase may be explained simply by the fact that people who visit Australia are now looking for something more than the typical visits to Sydney and the Outback.

The town has gotten a little busier in recent years, especially around the big travel seasons, so if you want to check it out, you'll probably want to do so soon, before it becomes the next big tourist spot. For now, Katoomba and the Blue Mountains are still a well-kept secret, so if you find yourself in or around Sydney, you may want to book a visit to Katoomba at the very next opportunity.
