The Blue Mountains are a popular escape for many Sydneysiders at this time of year. The temperatures tend to be are not too hot and not too cold to get out and about. It is also close-by so you can easily do a day trip.
Sydney is a pretty big place with a vast array of natural and man-made attractions to enjoy. We admit however that there are some great places to visit and things to do that aren’t in Sydney. If you must go, and you decide to drive, please use the ‘Stop. Revive. Survive.’ rest areas by the side of the road. If your aim is to see some of the countryside, do some sightseeing on route by getting off of the Highway / Freeway for a while. We have suggested a few places to stop if you planning on driving north up the coast. Where ever you go, whatever you do, please stay safe.
