The Blue Mountains are enormously popular with casual tourists who head west from Sydney on day tours to check out the views at echo point and the Three Sisters sandstone rock formation. For those who love camping and fishing, the Blue Mountains are simply a wonderland.


The rugged region, west of Sydney in New South Wales is full of steep cliffs, eucalyptus forests, waterfalls and even small villages dotted with affordable accommodation and spectacular gardens. Katoomba is the major town of the region bordering the Blue Mountains National Park, which also offers numerous bushwalking trails for those who like hiking and walking as much as they do camping.


The Blue Mountains is actually a part of the wider Central Tablelands region. The area features a wide variety of waterways and a huge diversity of fish species for those who are looking for secluded fishing in some of the most spectacular scenery Australia has to offer.


Most of the best places to fish are actually located within national parks, nature reserves and state forests, making access that much easier. At the same time, it’s important to remember we all must minimise our impact with green friendly fishing and camping practices.


We’re collecting our favourite camping locations and help with fishing spots so you can make your trip happen.
