The Blue Mountains section of the Great Dividing Range is situated just over 100 kilometres (60 miles) west of Sydney, NSW. The Blue Mountains offer visitors a chance to explore some of the most beautiful natural scenery in the world.
The pass through the mountains starts in the west around 4.8 kilometres (3 miles) northwest of the Wolgan Gap and runs in a generally southeasterly direction for about 96 kilometres (60 miles), ending at Emu Plains in the Western Sydney basin.
The range rises from an eastern escarpment at around 370–550 metres (1,200–1,800 feet) to around 1,180 metres (3,871 feet) in the west.
