As most people will be aware, some parts of the Blue Mountains were affected by fires in October. These fires caused loss of homes in the lower Blue Mountains areas near Winmalee and Springwood. However, it is important to note that the Upper Blue Mountains areas that is most frequented by tourists and our guests are completely unaffected by smoke or fires. Areas impacted by the fires are a good 45 minute drive from Glen Isla and the major tourist destinations such as the Three Sisters, Scenic World, Leura and Wentworth Falls have been unaffected and continue to operate as per normal.
While here at Glen Isla, we’ve been fortunate enough not to be affected by cancellations, many businesses in the area experiencing a significant downturn. Tourism is the major industry in the area, so it is important that people continue to visit the Blue Mountains to keep our community alive. So please, while you’re visiting our beautiful area and staying here at Glen Isla, please remember to support our locally run businesses. The Blue Mountains is very much open for business and remains a breathtakingly beautiful place to visit.
