Blue Mountains Accommodation A wide variety of accommodation is available from budget to luxury stays. A simple to use guide to the range of accommodation featured in Blue Mountains on our website.
This is one of the most picturesque areas of Australia and, because it was established as a holiday destination by early settlers, it has a sense of history not usual in wilderness areas.
The extraordinary vertical cliffs, innumerable waterfalls, suspended lookouts and quaint walking tracks make it an ideal destination for bushwalkers and hikers, as well as the more adrenalin-addicted who like to go canyoning or rock climbing.
Of course, it's also ideally suited to those who like classy hotels, a gin-and-tonic and a nice view!
