For thrill seekers heading to the Blue Mountains for an adventure based holiday that will provide plenty of chances to get up close to nature, the canvas cabins of Turon Gates will be right up your street. You’ll need good navigational skills to find the site, but it’s well worth the bother. Wash away the day’s dirt with a hot shower, before cooking dinner on the outside fire and then settling in for an excellent night’s sleep in the cloud-like bed. It’s BYO ice and you can get a discount if you arrive with your own linen.
Whether you’ve headed to the mountains for some off-grid relaxing beneath the gum trees, or you’ve hell bent on having the hardcore adventure holiday you’ve always dreamed about, the simple fact is this: you’re going to need somewhere to stay. And when it comes to the Blue Mountains, there’s no one-size-fits-all option. Instead, you’ll find everything from cute cottages to your own eco-friendly cabin, plus plenty of bank balance-friendly places.
