The million-hectare World Heritage listed wilderness of the Blue Mountains in Sydney’s backyard is the perfect antidote to city life. We could spend every weekend in the Blue Mountains and not get sick of it. Strap in and get set on one of the easiest weekend getaways we have. Go slow, stop often, and don’t forget to breathe the fresh air infused with eucalyptus oil.

This trip can be expanded or reduced to fit your time constraints by cutting out the Jenolan Caves stop.
