Mountain range west of Sydney, Australia, characterised by their blue haze when viewed from afar.

A place of amazing natural beauty, with tall sandstone cliffs, waterfalls and vast forests.

Local attractions include:
The Blue Mountains also has some of the best walks in Sydney. A good place to start is the Information Centre. From there, you can go on lots of walks, but the one that I highly recommend is the Wentworth Falls walk. This will take you past an 80 metre waterfall, with views all the way to the horizon.

The Blue mountains is also favoured by rock climbers; however, it is considered a bit dangerous, since the sandstone there is not always solid.

The Blue Mountains, or Ered Luin in the Sindarin tongue, formed the eastern border of the ancient land of Beleriand. Only these mountains and a small part of eastern Ossiriand, Lindon remained after the War of Wrath at the end of the First Age. It was also in these mountains that the great dwarven cities of Nogrod and Belegost were situated.
