Kangaroo Valley and the Blue Mountains

After Christmas we travelled from the NSW coast to the Blue Mountains via Kangaroo Valley and the Southern Highlands. Having previously visited NSW during a drought Kangaroo Valley was surprisingly lush and verdant, so much so that during one woodland walk only the bright and multi-coloured birds gave any clue that this was not Britain!

While the Southern Highlands were pleasantly off the main international tourist route, the spectacular vistas in the Blue Mountains fully justified its reputation.
