Crossing the Blue Mountains
The traditional custodians of the Blue Mountains are the Gundungurra people. Although the native people knew routes across the mountains, finding a crossing presented a great challenge to the early settlers. Credit for the first crossing by settlers is generally given to Gregory Blaxland, William Lawson and William Charles Wentworth. http://www.sl.nsw.gov.au/discover_collections/history_nation/exploration/blue_mountains/index.html
