Exploring Sydney’s Blue Mountains

The Blue Mountains are Sydney's greatest recreation area for people who prefer the bush to the sea. Part of the Great Dividing Range the area stretches from the Gippsland region of Victoria in the south, to the tropical rainforests of north Queensland.

The Blue Mountains are so named because from Sydney they look blue. They are clad in vast forests of eucalypts (commonly called gum trees), which in the hot sun discharge a fine mist of eucalyptus oil from their leaves. The mist refracts light, which makes the haze look blue at a distance.

This video shows what a magical place it is.
