What more can be said about the world famous Blue Mountains, with it's
escarpments and breathtaking scenery. Named after the blue haze created by the
eucalyptus oil in the air above the mountain gum forests, the Blue Mountains
offer wonderful opportunities for photography, with cascading waterfalls, breath-taking panoramas,
gorges, rainforests, fern-filled gullies and the abundance of flora and fauna.
Mountains National Park includes more than 240,000 hectares of dissected
sandstone plateau, forested river valleys and deep gorges. The Park adjoins
Wollemi National Park to the north
and Kanangra Boyd National Park
to the south west, making it one of the largest natural areas in New South Wales,
and a great region for photographs, as a reminder of a special place.
