The Blue Mountains are absolutely stunning and a complete must if you are visiting Sydney. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to experience some of that famous Australian nature – especially if you’re not planning on visiting some of the other national parks in Australia, but still want to experience a bit of what the Australian nature has to offer. There are a lot of expensive tours and HOHO busses to go on if you’re not really interested in hiking or going by yourself. However, I love hiking and exploring without a million tourists around. If you do too or if you’re on a budget, you can easily go on a day trip to The Blue Mountains for under 3 AUD ($2) – and that includes visiting 3 of the small towns in the mountains.
This is how we did The Blue Mountains for under 3 AUD.
