Synopsis by Nathan Southern

Long regarded by those in the know as one of Australia's preeminent natural wonders, the Blue Mountains encompass vast canyons, towering peaks (including the famed Three Sisters formation), and thousands upon thousands of square miles of lush foliage. Naturalist and film producer Greg Grainger's documentary Blue Mountains Magic takes the audience on a detailed, visually sumptuous tour of this environment; the journey begins with a ride on a steam locomotive from Sydney into the said hills, and covers such spectacles as a Charlestone dance competition, "echoing" contests in the mountains and a tour of antiquated settlements in 1920s-era racecars.
