Tips and reviews

Here's what Trippy members say about Blue Mountains:

"If you fancy a trip a bit out of the city, I would recommend going to the Blue Mountains which is a two hour train ride from Sydney city centre (only $8 when I went)."  See More

"Blue Mountains just outside of Sydney are incredible!"  See More

"Try to get up to the Blue Mountains outside Sydney, and the Jenolan Caves."  See More

"Blue Mountains is more a hiking expedition, very outdoors with some beautiful natural pools."  See More

"If you can take a day to go to the Blue Mountains, there is some gorgeous hiking:"  See More

"Hi Bianca, You probably can't go past the Blue Mountains."  See More

"Michelle is right, you should really head to the Blue Mountains!"  See More

"The Blue Mountains has great walks but it snowed there last week."  See More

"venture out to the Blue Mountains - Katoomba and Blackheath have some great bush walks"  See More

"Hi Belen Tasmania has some great places to visit. I live in Melbourne and I have been there four times in the past four years and am always amazed at hidden gems that it has to offer. It has more forest, mountains and more wildlife than most of Australia and gets very few overseas visitors. It has the most "English" looking towns in Australia. I very highly recommend a visit to Hobart (capital of the state of Tasmania) and the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA). The museum is the personal project of an eccentric Tasmanian multi-millionaire who has spent over $200 million on the best and strangest of modern art and many beautiful ancient pieces. It is a unique brain-changing experience and you can take a wonderful modern ferry up the river to arrive there. I also recommend the tiny town of Strahan on the far west coast – a lovely patch of wilderness. I agree with the other Trippy members that you must change your itinerary plans given you only have two weeks. If you visit each of Tasmania, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide (and Kangaroo Island) and Perth, you will be spending fully 7 days of your 14 days waiting around in airports and transiting to cities (which is expensive). It would be like visiting Lima, Bogota, Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Rio and Caracas in two weeks. My wife is from Chile and we have had family members from Chile visiting here a number of times. We have learnt the lesson on not doing too much when travelling around – especially in the first few days. Australia is enormous – almost the size of the United States. I suggest you dump Brisbane and Adelaide (and therefore Kangaroo Island) and maybe also dump Perth. Brisbane and Adelaide are nice cities but they don’t hold any particular unique interest (in my opinion). Perth is a stunning city – wonderfully bright, clean and organised but is also a problem because it takes so long to get to (nearly 4 hours flight from Melbourne). Kangaroo Island is nice but it will take two and a half days to see it as it is more than two hours south of Adelaide, then a 45 minute ferry trip – too far and too expensive for just a day trip. There are hundreds of other great places to see kangaroos in Australia. Near Melbourne at Ballarat there is a wildlife park (!"  See More

"3 days in Sydney would ok to see the city and Harbour, for hiking and such you will need a day trip to the Blue Mountains around 2 hours from the city."  See More

"Hi Kristine, It so varies on your interest, but suggest you spend at least four days in Sydney as a couple in the city is a must and there are some great places to visit outside like the Blue Mountains and Hunter Valley."  See More

"One is to the Blue Mountains - this is an easy-ish drive out of central Sydney with some lovely towns, great scenery and, even though it's very touristy, I'd recommend you try the Scenic Railway, which is said to be the steepest passenger rail line in the world."  See More

"You should visit the Blue Mountains as a day trip, spend some time around Circular Quay and The Rocks, take a ferry to Manly."  See More

"Cog railway, Blue Mountains outside Sydney, Australia"  See More

"Starting in Melbourne, I would say a couple days there then drive the Great Ocean Rd (a beautiful drive between Melbourne and Sydney which takes at LEAST a couple of days and 3-4 in Sydney in order to visit the Blue Mountains, the many city attractions (too many to list - worth another Q!"  See More

"We would agree with Jen and her suggestions - Blue Mountains is not impossible in one day but it would be tiring!"  See More

"For Sydney I would recommend 3-4 nights plus either a day trip or overnight trip to the Blue Mountains as it's only 2 hours away by train."  See More
