The Blue Mountains national park is a World Heritage listed landscape of dramatic cliffs and deep, densely vegetated gullies.

The Blue Mountains National Park is 50-110 km west of Sydney. It has over 140km of walking tracks of all grades of difficulty, including wheelchair accessible tracks.

The park contains wide representations of eucalypt habitats, and is home to a number of rare and threatened species. 

The Three Sisters are visible from the Giant Stairway at Echo Point, Katoomba. The National Parks Hertiage Centre at Blackheath and the visitors centres at Echo Point and Glenbrook provide all you need to know about local walking tracks and attractions.

Stunning and unforgettable views are to be had from the Conservation Hut and Wentworth Falls picnic area.

Foundation Projects

Growing Protected Areas in the Blue Mountains 

In 2011, the Foundation received a donation of land worth $20,000 in the Blue Mountains. This high conservation value property acts as an ecological buffer zone, and is home to the threatened plant species Needle Geebung, Persoonia acerosa.


Showcasing the History of Mount Werong

The Foundation supported the creation of interpretive displays for the Mount Werong campground and the Ruby Creek Mine in the Blue Mountains National Park. These interpretive materials showcase the area's rich, unique and interesting history to visitors.
