Why The Blue Mountains is Now the Place to Live

Why The Blue Mountains is Now the Place to Live

If you’ve ever been lucky enough to visit the Blue Mountains on a holiday to NSW, then you surely know how magnificent this area is. However, living like a local is a very different experience from a short stay as a tourist. So, what’s it like to permanently take up residence in this world heritage-listed wilderness? Hotondo Homes is here to explain why it’s never been a better time than now to invest in a house and land package in regional NSW. 


Bordering on Sydney’s metropolitan area, the foothills of the Blue Mountains start around 50 kilometres west from the centre of the state capital. However, that hasn’t put off those buying a piece of land to build their dream home on. With COVID-19 changing the way we live and work, our office hours are becoming much more flexible – with the option of remote work becoming even more common. So, you can enjoy the best of both worlds when it comes to relaxing without being too far away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Dramatic natural scenery

It’s no secret that the Blue Mountains is well known for its spectacular landscapes and lush bushland. With its rolling hills, dense wilderness and fresh mountain air, over 1500 different species of animals and plants will be right outside your doorstep. For a more relaxed lifestyle, you really can’t look past the Blue Mountains region.

Activities and amenities

With plenty of things to keep you busy all year round, you’ll never be bored. If you’re the active type, you’ll love the hiking and walking tracks through foliage. Spot the magical waterfalls, and of course visit the Three Sisters, an impressive rock structure. Prefer lazy afternoons of degustation? Try out the craft breweries, bars and hipster cafes. For the artist within, you’re sure to love the local murals and street art, as well as theatres.

And of course, getting around the Blue Mountains is hassle free. Well serviced by rail and bus, travelling across towns and within towns is easy enough.


It goes without saying that buying a home away from metropolitan Sydney is going to be a more affordable option than living in the city’s suburbs. According to Domain Group, the median pricing of homes is $680,000, with value steadily rising year on year. If you’re looking to snatch up a piece of land in the Blue Mountains, know that it will be a worthwhile long-term investment.

Something for everyone

Like the sound of Glenbrook? Think you’re more of a Katoomba person? Prefer to move your family to Wentworth Falls? Each township in the Blue Mountains region has a personality of its own, and is sure to suit your taste and lifestyle.
