These little beauties are focused on uncovering ‘not to be missed’ gems in regional areas, because we’ve got plenty to see and do here in our own backyard, you just need to know where to find these local treasures.
The Blue Mountains
Just over an hour’s drive west from Sydney, you’ll enter this beautiful bushland oasis – unique with its iconic blue haze, the area was heritage listed in 2000. It’s the perfect excuse for a day trip or a weekend escape to recharge the batteries and rejuvenate the mind. Tread lightly amongst this natural wonder that covers kilometres of breathtaking (literally) walking tracks, along with antiques, culinary delights and artistic creations. A popular wedding destination too, ‘something old, new, borrowed and blue’ sums it up in a nutshell. It’s magical all year round but particularly in winter/spring when the log fires are burning and the flowers are in full bloom. If you can escape during the week, you’ll miss the crowds so don’t forget your camera, pack your Parka and gallivant about in the great outdoors.
