Greater Blue Mountains Drive - The Mounts
Greater Blue Mountains drive – The Mounts is like a tasting plate of this iconic NSW mountain range. The high altitude scenic driving and cycling route allows you to sample some of the Blue Mountain’s best lookouts, forests, waterfalls, gardens and picnic areas. While the drive is about an hour, take as long as you like to explore the winding back roads through various towns and natural environments.
Along the way you’ll have the chance to stop off at Mount Tomah Botanic Garden, see the heathlands of Mount Banks and picnic at Pierces Pass near Walls lookout. You can explore the heritage gardens and temperate rainforests of Mount Wilson and Mount Irvine.
Bring a picnic lunch with you or take advantage of the local cafes and restaurants along the way. If you’re a keen cyclist or touring by 4WD, you can complete the circuit across Bowens Creek. Remember to take your binoculars if you want to go birdwatching.
