The Blue Mountains has long held a special place in Australian folklore. Home to popular natural tourist attractions, like The Three Sisters, the area is known for its rugged beauty. It is also a paradise for the physically active, thanks to the region’s many walking and cycling trails.
Named after the blue haze produced by the abundant eucalyptus trees, the area has a strong connection to nature. The small towns that house most of its population are surrounded by thick bushland. While this does make the region prone to bushfires, it also means most locations benefit from stunning lush settings.
Starting just 50km west of Sydney’s CBD, the Blue Mountains has long been seen as an affordable lifestyle location. Improving transport links have improved connection with the capital, making permanent moves more viable. This is supported by a growing local retail, café, and restaurant scene, as well as plenty of other local amenities.
All of this combines to make the Blue Mountains a great option for homeowners and investors alike. But, in such a diverse market, getting the most for your investment dollar takes real knowledge and skill.

As experienced buyers agents, we find areas like the Blue Mountains truly fascinating. The broad appeal of this beautiful region has been obvious for decades. However, it took the perfect combination of unique circumstances and market conditions for it to truly be appreciated.
Much of the Blue Mountainsappeal comes from its increasing viability as a commuter location. As such, moves in the Blue Mountains property market are often closely tied to infrastructure investment and improvement. For example, ongoing upgrading of the Great Western Highway is cutting travel times and causing an influx of new residents.
The Lower Blue Mountains, which is closer to the city, has traditionally been one of the most popular areas. In fact, many now see this area as effectively the outer suburbs of Sydney. As many buyers are willing to pay for commutability, properties in this area tend to be more expensive.
As such, if you are considering investing in the Blue Mountains property market, it is best to look deeper into the region. Major towns like Leura and Katoomba are always popular, providing gorgeous views and all of the required conveniences. Property in these locations also tends to be more affordable, at least compared to similarly sought-after areas of Sydney’s West.
Best of all, buyers and renters alike are keen to get a slice of the idyllic local lifestyle in these tourist-friendly towns. This means there are some great opportunities on offer for the savvy investor that knows where to look.
