About the neighbourhood
Welcome to the UNESCO World Heritage Blue Mountains located in New South Wales, Australia. Prepare to escape and leave your cares behind, as you're enveloped in an environment which is five times older than the Grand Canyon. The Blue Mountains offers everything for you to do as little or as much as you please, from canyoning, abseiling, bush-walking, hiking, cycling, rock climbing to taking in the magnificent flora, fauna, sunsets and sunrises aplenty. At Mountain Whispers we pride ourselves in offering a luxury experience with optional inclusions from in-house chefs, waiters, massage therapists to private vintage historical Cadillac tours complete with costumes. Mountain Whispers is where memories are created.
Getting around
Best way to see all the local attractions and to get around for the duration of your stay is the Blue Mountains Explorer Bus (a red London double decker bus) which allows you to hop-on and hop-off for the duration of your stay. Get a real bird's eye view of the Blue Mountains whilst sitting on the second level - a beautiful experience complete with commentary. There are 31 stops around the villages of Leura and Katoomba so you can pick up the bus at every major location.
