If you love your time in Sydney, the Blue Mountains are perfect for you. The Blue Mountains are only a two-hour drive west by vehicle. In this area, you will find the oldest plant species around. The plants are called Wollemi pines. They were around when the dinosaurs were roaming the planet. Other areas in the Blue Mountains to take in include forests, canyons, waterfalls, and the storied sandstone cliffs. If you love the outdoors and all the hiking you can do, you will love the Blue Mountains. Eucalyptus oil is naturally found in the Blue Mountains, so you can take some oil home to remember your experience there.
