Best Time to Visit Blue Mountains

The Blue Mountains can be divided into two regions: Upper and Lower Mountains. Upper Mountains which includes Katoomba, Leura and Blackheath is the colder of the two whereas the Lower Mountains (consisting of Springwood and Glenbrook) are warmer. There really is no single suitable time to visit this scenic place, even though they are touted as a winter destination. Depending on where your interest lies, Blue Mountains can be frequented almost all year round.

Summer time (December-February) is the perfect time to indulge in outdoor activities. The nights are cool and days are bearable. The Sculpture at Scenic World, an annual outdoor exhibition which stretches over two months: February-March is meant for a true outdoor enthusiast.

Winters, which last from June to August is the best time to visit Blue Mountains if it’s the events you are looking forward to. Yulefest, in the winter months, is also the most awaited time of the year when the entire region is taken captive under the spell of revelry. June also witnesses a highly anticipated community event known as the Winter Magic Festival, when dancers, artists, musicians and costumed performers come together on the streets to celebrate the Winter solstice. There is a high possibility of snow during these months and the weather is unusually chilly, so take along your Skiing gear and plenty of warm clothes. Winters are also the peak season when tourists come in the mountains to partake in the festivities.

Spring and autumn can also be considered if you are planning to visit Blue Mountains, greeting you to the finest that nature has to offer. In the springtime (September-November), there is profusion of colour as the flowers start to bloom and nature is at its best. The Leura Gardens Festival in the month of October is a must see. However, if you want to enjoy the Blue Mountains Folk Music Festival, the autumn months of March-May can be given a thought.
