- The Greater Blue Mountains National Park is nearly half the size of Belgium (30,500 square km’s) (11,776 square miles).
- It contains over 90 species of eucalyptus, supporting such a significant proportion of the world’s eucalypt species in the Greater Blue Mountains Area. Twelve of these are believed to occur only in the Sydney region.
- The Wollemi Pine, worlds oldest species of tree found in Wollemi National Park is unique to the Blue Mountains. The region is so densely forested that the 40-meter-high trees escaped detection until 1994, flourishing undisturbed in a remote valley less than 200 km from Sydney.
- The Wollemi Pine, one of the world’s rarest species, a “living fossil” dating back to the age of the dinosaurs. It was thought to have been extinct for millions of years. The few surviving trees of this ancient species are known only from three small populations located in remote, secret & inaccessible gorges within the Wollemi National Park.
- There are over 140 km’s of walking tracks of all grades in magnificent settings make the Blue Mountains a bushwalker’s paradise. Some of these tracks were originally Aboriginal tracks.
The Blue Mountains are not actually mountains but a series of plateaus that form part of the Great Dividing Range that runs north/south on the Australian continent.
The plateaus rise from 100 meters above sea level to 1,300 meters at its highest point.
Governor Phillip had first name them “Carmarthen Hills” then “Landsdowne Hills” in 1788 but was soon changed again.
The Blue Mountains got its namesake when the early settlers first viewed it from a distance.
It appeared a blue haze was lurking above the range.
The mountains are not actually blue, it’s the evaporation of eucalyptus oil from the dominant eucalyptus trees and the sun light scattering blue light particles that cause the blue haze.
