Spanning the entire Blue Mountains region over four weekends between March 18 and April 10, 2022, Equinox will feature myriad free and ticketed events for locals and visitors of all ages among one of the most recognised ancient landscapes on Earth.

``Equinox will become an annual tradition that will help reinstate the Blue Mountains as a key tourist destination in NSW and Australia,’’ Mr Cronshaw said.

The new event is made possible through partnering with local businesses and existing events as well as $2.6 million funding from the federal and state Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Fund announced in July.


This event is made possible by $2.6 million from the Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Fund, co-funded by the Australian Government and NSW Government. With the grant Blue Mountains Tourism, as the leading tourism authority in the region, will administer and manage the Blue Mountains Visitor Economy Revitalisation Project, a two-year destination management program that will reinstate the Blue Mountains as a key tourist destination in NSW and Australia.
