The Blue Mountains area is a deeply incised sandstone tableland that encompasses 1.03 million hectares of eucalypt-dominated landscape just inland from Sydney, Australia’s largest city, in south-eastern Australia. It constitutes one of the largest and most intact tracts of protected bush land in Australia. It also supports an exceptional representation of the taxonomic, physiognomic and ecological diversity that eucalypts have developed: an outstanding illustration of the evolution of plant life. A number of rare and endemic taxa, including relict flora such as the Wollemi pine, also occur here. Ongoing research continues to reveal the rich scientific value of the area as more species are discovered,” says UNESCO in its list of World Heritage Sites. Well, if you’re travelling around the Australian mainland, this exotic tourist haven is not something you should miss.
