About the location

The Blue Mountains; a mountainous region and a mountain range located in New South Wales, Australia. It is approximately 100kms (65 miles) west of the Sydney metropolitan area, its foothills starting about 50 kilometres (31 miles) closer. A large part of the Blue Mountains is incorporated into the Greater Blue Mountains Area World Heritage Site, consisting of seven national park areas and a conservation reserve.

The Blue Mountains are a popular destination for rock climbers, mountain bikers and hikers as well as canyoning and other adventure sports, or simply for walkers wanting to enjoy our unique environment. The area is also tourist mecca for other attractions including scenery, art galleries, restaurants, folk festivals and all manner of diversions in between. To visit the the Blue Mountains is simply to experience it !

Several established towns are situated on the highway which runs through the Blue Mountains, including; Katoomba, Blackheath, Mount Victoria, and Springwood. Smaller villages also exist on what were former staging posts for the horse-drawn coaches which travelled the early highway. Wentworth Falls is one of those villages, and it is 2 hours by train or car from Sydney.

Wentworth Falls is cooler than Sydney. Summer temperatures range from 22°C to the 30s. In the evenings the temperature falls as the sun sets. During winter, the temperature is typically around 10 to 11 °C in the daytime with −1 °C or so on clear nights and 3 to 4 °C on cloudy nights.
