Experiencing nature through sight, sound, smell and touch can relax your mind and body. A mid-week getaway or opting to work remotely for a few days in the Blue Mountains is a great way to reconnect with nature and unwind.
Check out these three nature spots on the Blue Mountains Road Trip itinerary that will supercharge your staycation.
The Cascade is a 95-metre-long freshwater pool with a system of waterfalls situated throughout the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah. The Garden also serves as a paradise for birds and their songs can be heard throughout the vast Living Collection. Bird songs and running water are peaceful sounds that can help quiet the mind and transport the listener to a calming space.
Work remotely in the Blue Mountains
If you can't escape the city without bringing work with you, then settle in at the Wollemi Wilderness Cabins for a while. There are several immersive rooms that bring nature to your doorstep and give you the opportunity to go bushwalking, mountain biking, rock climbing or simply unwind.
A peaceful walk
Breath in the fresh mountain air at the Breenhold Garden in Mount Wilson. This impressive heritage garden estate has forest walks and unique vertical wall displays spanning 45-hectares. You may recognize some areas of the garden as West Egg Cottage from the feature film The Great Gatsby directed by Baz Luhrman.
