This is the beautiful Blue Mountains which are one to two hours west of Sydney, Australia.
The name Blue derives from the blue tinge you see from a distance which I believe is created by the oil of the many eucalyptus trees.
The area is dotted by small villages & many picturesque walks. The most famous spot is the Three Sisters at Katoomba but I much prefer the less crowded areas at Blackheath & Wentworth Falls.
