Blue Mountains News and Happenings

Autumn in the Blue Mountains

Yes its the middle of summer now, but planning ahead is the name of the game.  While many people are still heading to the coast its a great time to visit the Blue Mountains for two reasons:

  • Its a lot coooler in the upper mountains around Leura, Katoomba and on to Mount Victoria, rather than the hot and crowded city
  • From mid January to March, the area is uncrowded and you can get the pick of the best accommodation

So go to our home page now and run a search.  If you use the advanced search you can specify luxury items such a spa, or want a property with a baby's cot.  If you are looking further ahead, you can specify a property with a wood fire.  There is a huge choice.

Diamonds on the table and Champagne on the menu

Throughout the month of February, visitors to the Blue Mountains are being invited to step back in time to the Roaring Twenties and experience true decadence at Bygone Beautys’ special Traditional High Tea event - Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend. With a tabletop display of sparkling diamonds accompanied by a complementary glass of champagne, guests will experience the full 1920s grandeur, set amongst the backdrop of an eccentric and old world dining room in Leura.

Escape the city one last time these school holidays.

Make a break for the Blue Mountains this long-weekend. Feel the difference as you leave the urban jungle and begin the ascent to fresh air and stunning views.

It’s only a 90 minute drive from Sydney yet once you arrive in the Blue Mountains you will feel a world away. But getting away from it all doesn’t mean you have to miss out on a thing.

Katoomba Lady Luck festival

Saturday 16th January 2016

Katoomba’s Lady Luck Festival returns this Saturday with rockabilly fun for everyone on the forecourt of the Carrington Hotel. Get your hair rollers out, your dancing shoes on, and head up to the Blue Mountains for a mini-break this weekend.

Wentworth Falls in the Blue Mountains

One aspect of escaping the city to the Blue Mountains for a weekend is the opportunity to unwind and explore the delightful villages dotted along the Great Western Highway - each with their own character. Wentworth Falls village has character of an artistic and sophisticated kind.

The Woodford Academy is celebrating its final Open Day and art series for 2015 this Saturday 21st November, with an immersive art experience, both visual and audio, plus coffee, tea, cakes and options for unique and artistic Christmas gifts. See this wonderfully kept historic house being celebrated by the community and artists alike.

Although the Blue Mountains are vast and green, with valleys stretching as far as the eye can see, you needn’t stray far from your accommodation for great coffee and to discover a treasure or two to take home.

Regardless of whether you are staying in one of our cottages in Wentworth Falls, Leura or Katoomba, a short drive takes you to the lovely mountain village of Blackheath. Nestled between cliffs and the highway, it’s hard to go past.

When visitors to the Blue Mountains think of attractions to see in Katoomba, they usually think of the natural wonder of the Three Sisters and the vast green valleys below. However a new attraction has opened at Katoomba, which is a feast for the eyes of a different kind.

A laneway in Katoomba has been transformed from a little frequented and dingey alley, into a popular and colourful passageway for tourists, who flock to the area to view the works of talented street artists from around the world in the Katoomba Street Art Walk.

Leura is a bustling and beautiful village of the Blue Mountains that is popular throughout every season of the year. With exceptional shopping options in a gorgeous heritage setting, visitors can find everything from Josophan’s award winning chocolates handmade in Leura, to books, clothing, furniture, jewellery and wonderful homewares direct from France. Whether you are looking for gifts for yourself or loved ones, or in need of a little pampering, Leura Mall is the place you will find it.
