The Blue Mountains has been recognised as the best bushwalking journey and the cosiest winter destination.
The Blue Mountains has excelled at this year’s annual Australian Traveller People’s Choice Awards, being recognised as one of Australia's best holiday destinations.

The 2015 survey had more than 4,000 entries with the Blue Mountains taking out two categories.

The ideal destination for both experiencing the outdoors and staying in comfort, the Blue Mountains has been voted the best spot for bushwalking as well as the best region for a cosy winter getaway.

"With inviting, breathtaking landscapes that beckon walkers and equally enticing spots by cosy fireplaces, it's no wonder the Blue Mountains lures two very different types of travellers," says Australian Traveller editor, Lara Picone.
