The Blue Mountains is preparing for a surge in tourism now that lockdown has been lifted in Sydney.
Jason Cronshaw, Blue Mountains Tourism president, said businesses are excited after the quiet the region has experienced in the recent years.
“Everything’s still here — all the incredible landscapes, the fantastic experiences and the great food and wine, the charming guesthouses and grand hotels,” he said.
“In fact, they’re probably even better because everyone has used the lockdown to mousse and spruce their properties, develop new menus and create new experiences.”
Visitors are asked to plan ahead and prebook as travellers begin to flock to the region, or try to visit outside of popular times, either by visiting midweek or dining earlier than normal.
With QR check-ins expected to stay, holidaymakers are also asked to be patient and understanding as processes change.
