Alpine fun near Blue Mountains holiday homes to rent

Featuring an array of outdoor activities and charming towns, the Blue Mountains in New South Wales, Australia offer something for everyone. The dramatic scenery in this rugged region includes steep cliffs, waterfalls and dense forests. As if that wasn't enough natural beauty, the mountains got their name from the blue haze created when sunlight hits the eucalyptus trees. For a dose of culture, escape to the mountain villages filled with galleries and gardens. Your Blue Mountains vacation rental also puts you just 90 minutes from the bright lights and bustling streets of Sydney.
