Blue Mountains Unusual Getaways

If you are looking for something out of the ordinary for your Blue Mountains Accommodation, here is our guide to some of our more unusual Blue Mountains Getaways.

Woodbridge Estate

Stunning luxurious farm homestead with 5 bedrooms and 3 bedroom guest wing located on 300 acres in the glorious Megalong Valley.Total privacy, floodlit tennis court, swimming pool, croquet lawn, 4 hole golf course, bush airstrip or helicopter kanding area, several dams, horse exercising yard and stables available for your equine companion are just some of the features of this luxury farmstay.  Local caterers are available for your group.  Horse riding and trail rides are nearby or on the farm by arrangement.

Shirri Mirri

If you are impressed by glorious views then Shirri Mirri cannot fail to impress!  The home features a large deck and huge windows that make the most of its incredible location on the escarpment.

Astro-Tourism at Observatory Cottage

The Blue Mountains Observatory, apart from offering rental accommodation for visitors to the Blue Mountains, will also provide viewing of the night sky through astronomical telescopes. The astronomer will show highlights of objects that can be seen clearly at any particular time of the month. A brief explanation of what is visible and answering questions to the inquisitive visitors.

At an elevation of nearly 1,000 meters, BMO boasts pristine and transparent skies that closely resemble the conditions found in the Australian outback. During clear moonless nights,  you can see our Milky Way galaxy and the two satellite galaxies, the Magellan clouds.

This is true even though the local township of Leura is only a 5 minutes drive away.

The tour is unique. There is no time limit for the tour. No waiting cues, no fixed format, no time limits - a very personal experience offered by no other facility, entirely tailored to your group's interests and enjoyment!

This service is only available to the observatory cottage guests due to limited space. Please allow 14 days notice to book this tour.

What people say about us!


Hi Geoff,  Thank you for your courtesy email.  I wanted to send you a message to show our appreciation of how smoothly the whole booking process went and also to let you know what a lovely time we had at Lynton Cottage.  What a beautifully comfortable cottage to spend our week in the mountains.  Loved the decor and the light-filled ambiance.  Would not hesitate to stay here (or another of your properties, should this one not be available) next time we visit. 

Warm regards, Nicole

Hi Geoff,  Just wanted to let you know that we had a great stay at Leura Bungalow.  It was perfectly suited to my family - warm and cosy with everything we could possibly need. And located just down from the Mall meant we often walked up to the shops rather than drive.   And your booking system and customer service was great and just so easy. Love it.

Many thanks, Kellie

Hi Geoff,  We wish to pass on our sincere thanks to the owners of Dukis House. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay in the Blue Mountains which was made even Better with the accommodation provided by them.   It exceeded our expectations with every detail carefully thought through providing every comfort We would need.  We would certainly rebook this accommodation when we return to the Mountains. 

Thank you for your easy booking website and efficient service provided by your company. 

Kind regards, Jacqui

Thanks so much Geoff - we are all really excited about our mini getaway- you've been super helpful. 

Cheers, Janet

Hello Geoff,
We would like to thank you for making our booking and stay so easy at White Cottage.  We have used many holiday booking sites and none have come close to yours in regard to seeing immediate availability, promptness of reply and organisation of keys and info.  It was refreshing not to have to wait days to hear whether a property was available, or to turn up at paid accommodation to be told the booking was non existent! Due to the nature of our business we usually book a few days away at the last minute, usually this is not an option when booking a cottage, so we are very grateful to you for setting up this fantastic booking service.  We have been telling everyone we know!  We will be back hopefully not too far away. Almost forgot! The accommodation was absolutely fantastic and just what we were looking for.

Thanks Again, 
Kind Regards, 
Ron & Sharon.

Thanks for confirmation of the booking and I want to say how impressed I am with your new web site. I found it so easy to find available accommodation for the specified dates and the information for the properties was very comprehensive. 


Allow me to congratulate you on your site. I book a lot of stuff from the computer, both here and overseas, and your's is very user friendly and informative. Well done!!


Dear Geoff,
Thank you for all your help with the accommodation I booked at Darjeeling House for last weekend.  We had a fabulous time.  The house was absolutely perfect and I will be recommending highly.  We had such a wonderful weekend.  Thank you very much.  Your organisation re: key, map, communication etc., was outstanding. 

Much appreciated, 

Dear Geoff, 
I just want to thank you for your great arrangement of our booking.  We enjoyed our stay over the weekend at Cedellands.

Best Regards,

Thanks Geoff for the follow on email after our wonderful stay in the Observatory Cottage.

We had a lovely stay in a top class accommodation. It was very clean, neat, and very well appointed. We will definitely be coming back to stay in this cottage and will also inform our friends. 

Thank you also for your prompt correspondences and all the information you provided in the area. It certainly came in handy when we were looking for places of interests and trail walks.


Dear Geoff,

We do want to thank you for all your help in making our stay a good one. The plumber came, fixed the hot tap, clued us in to the mystery of the gas oven, and we are grateful for your promptness in all this. The fact that you were contactable at any time for problems made this holiday a really enjoyable one.   I am happy to recommend Blue Mountains Getaways to friends. We loved the house. 

Thank you,

Thanks Geoff. 

Our stay at the White Cottage was lovely. Everything was perfect. We'll definitely come back and will use your website for searching accommodation.


Thanks Geoff....we were very happy with everything involved in staying at Holmcroft. Firstly the choosing of the property as I find your website easy to use and to check availabilty/cost and see pictures of the houses to help decide. Then the info on payment,key retrieval and support while staying was good too The payment process was great as we had only to pay the full amount and no deposit required. The actual property was wonderful and we plan to stay there again. I don't believe we left anything behind but appreciate that if we had it wouldn't be an issue. The house was very clean,well equipped and comfortable. We had a lovely stay and it was perfect for our family of 7 adults(kids and partners etc) I would certainly use your website again for a stay in the Blue Mtns and also recommend it to others.

Thanks again, Jane
