There is something so special about waking up in the great outdoors! Recently OntheQT went on an exciting camping trip to the Blue Mountains and it was all we could have wished for and more!
The Blue Mountains is a rugged region west of Sydney in Australia’s New South Wales. It is known for dramatic scenery encompassing steep cliffs, eucalyptus forests, stunning waterfalls and gorgeous hiking trails!
Katoomba is the main town in the area which is dotted with cute cafes, art galleries and guest houses with an selection of restaurants to choose from to fuel up on before a long trek! (If camping isn’t for you, you will also find alternative accommodations to choose from there!). We camped in Katoomba Falls caravan park which was perfect; great BBQ facilities, clean bathrooms and hot showers – what more could a happy camper wish for!
My favourite hiking trail was Wentworth Falls, we followed a steep path down the Mountain side for about an hour before coming to the prettiest waterfall I have ever seen! Luckily we had our swimming togs on so got to hop into some of the freshwater pools to cool down before hiking back up the mountainside! Most definitely a bucket list check! It was amazing! I also loved the Echo view point which has spectacular views of the iconic Three Sisters sandstone rock formation!
If you’re in the Sydney area I highly recommend a trip to the region! Happy Camping! 🙂
