A hazy, ultramarine when seen from afar, as you drive towards them they define the horizon. Then they seem to be marching across the landscape as you draw nearer, and the closer you venture the more beautiful they become. In fact, the Blue Mountains are so ruggedly photogenic they’re World Heritage listed. Make sure your camera’s batteries are fully charged.

Especially when you take a trip on the world’s steepest passenger train ride – the fabled Scenic Railway (the name is a masterpiece of understatement). You’ll be staying in the quaint and traditional village of Leura.

Stay: Three nights in the Old Leura Dairy.
