BLUE MOUNTAINS WELCOMES VISITORS AFTER MAJOR THREAT OF BUSHFIRES EASES

Blue Mountains Lithgow & Oberon Tourism (BMLOT) today announced that following the easing of conditions and risk of a major threat, the area is once again welcoming visitors to the Blue Mountains.

Blue Mountains Lithgow & Oberon Tourism (BMLOT) today announced that following the easing of conditions and risk of a major threat, the area is once again welcoming visitors to the Blue Mountains.

While some fire activity remains in the region, and tourism operators are constantly monitoring updates, BMLOT has reported that the main visitor experiences are open and good visibility overlooking the World Heritage Area.

To check the latest information regarding any areas affected by bushfires visitors should check the NSW Rural Fire Service website,

www.rfs.nsw.gov.au and www.livetraffic.com for traffic updates.

Our thoughts are with the communities affected by the bushfires, and our thanks to the NSW Rural Fire Service, Emergency Services and the scores of volunteers who helped to protect and support the impacted areas.

The Great Western Highway and railway line continue to be fully open and it is safe for visitors to experience the many hotels, cafes, restaurants, shops and major attractions such as Scenic World at Katoomba and Jenolan Caves at Oberon.

The high traffic visitor villages of Wentworth Falls, Leura and Katoomba are welcoming visitors. The township of Lithgow is open and Oberon remains unaffected.

BMLOT understands that a few businesses due to their bush location or inability to roster staff may remain temporarily closed.
