Tourists are being encouraged to return to the Blue Mountains in New South Wales, an area that was previously affected by the fires. The region is famous for its dramatic scenery, where you’ll find forests of eucalyptus, charming villages, and gushing waterfalls.

Many travelers visit the Blue Mountains National Park to take advantage of its network of bushwalking trails. The park also offers views of the famous sandstone rock formation known as the Three Sisters. Many sections of the park have now been reopened and visitors are once again free to enjoy the lookouts and picnic areas.

Local businesses have been left struggling as thousands of tourists have avoided the Blue Mountains over the usually busy Christmas break, so the tourism board is determined to boost their numbers of tourists in 2020.
