7 Photos of Australia's Blue Mountains National Park to Inspire a Visit

Nestled just about an hour west of downtown Sydney lies a beautiful national park that attracts travelers from all over the world, and for good reason!

There are no shortage of epic views in these parts.


Layers on layers on layers on layers makes for some epic sunsets in the mountains!


Kanangra Boyd National Park is directly next door and offers up epic panoramas and cliffs like this one. The untouched beauty of the Australian bush.


Called Hanging Rock for a reason, they don't sugar coat their names out here.


One of entirely too many little watering holes spread throughout the park, makes for some good long exposures!


Cliff hangs, light rays, mountains, and good company. Life doesn't get much better if you ask me.


Whoever mentioned that you should not go chasing waterfalls has not been to the Blue Mountains clearly.
