Known as Sydney’s backyard wilderness, the World Heritage Blue Mountains National Park is a 30-minute drive from Sydney Motorsport Park and home to the famous sandstone formation, The Three Sisters. Breathe in the fresh, eucalyptus-scented air, stand at bush lookouts and peer out across the forested valleys with their famous blue haze. In storybook mountain villages such as Leura, Katoomba and Blackheath, browse antique stores, buy handcrafted chocolates and enjoy mulled wine beside a heritage-hotel fireplace.

There’s a cocktail for everyone in Sydney; here’s where to find some of the best. Discover more of Sydney’s bar and nightlife here!
