The UNESCO World Heritage–listed Blue Mountains of New South Wales provide a playground of eucalyptus forests, sandstone cliffs, waterfalls, caves, and canyons within easy day-tour distance of Sydney. If you’re looking to stretch your legs and breathe the mountain air, these are some of the best outdoor activities.  

Hiking
The Australian Blue Mountains are home to a laundry list of treks and trails passing through rain forests and rocky crags. Day hikers can make the trek to Jellybean Pool for a refreshing swim in the popular watering hole, while more adventurous hikers can tackle the multi-day, 28-mile (45-kilometer) Six-Foot Track.

Horseback Riding
While it’s possible to take in the views aboard the Katoomba Scenic Railway, the steepest passenger railway in the world, outdoor enthusiasts might prefer to explore the Megalong Valley region on horseback instead.

Caving
The Blue Mountain slopes protect a cave system estimated to date back 340 million years. The Jenolan Caves, perhaps the oldest on earth, comprise cathedral-like chambers, tight passages, and illuminated cave formations. Experience the incredible acoustics during an underground concert.

4WD Tours
The rugged landscapes of the Blue Mountains are best explored in a 4WD. Leave the driving to a pro on a small-group Blue Mountains tour as you lose yourself in the natural beauty, taking in views of the Three Sisters from the Echo Point Lookout, Wentworth Falls, Prince Regents Glen, and Katoomba Falls.

This will be a full day of exploring destinations not usually seen or experienced by the average visitor to the World Heritage-listed upper Blue Mountains, west of Sydney. Yes, you could visit all the usual standard and well worn Blue Mountains crowded tourist destinations but isn’t it more fun to “step off the trail” and explore those little known places that only us locals know about? I'd like you to join me to explore the unknown, to see places that few have seen, to take home memories and tell of experiences that your friends will envy. We will experience awesome vistas, explore amazing caves, walk through cool rain forests, and dine on yummy local food and drink. The goal for the day is to avoid all the usual crowded tourist hot spots and visit some really outstanding secret places. Our day starts at Katoomba and we'll travel as far as Little Hartley, with stops in Medlow Bath, Blackheath, Megalong Valley, Shipley, and Mount Victoria.
