One of the best things about a Blue Mountains day tour is the chance to experience some of the Aboriginal art the area is known for. Red Hands Cave is one of the best preserved examples in the country, with vibrant colours still visible, although the cave walls were believed to have been painted up to 1600 years ago. Other more accessible art includes many galleries and craft shops that showcase art by Australia’s original inhabitants, and the local displays at the art gallery in Katoomba. However, the area has so much more to offer, and a tour here will show you some of the spectacular scenery that this part of Australia is famous for, including the Three Sisters, Grand Canyon and Lower Grose Valley. And one of the best things about the Blue Mountains is that they are only a couple of hours drive from Sydney.
