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.

This January long weekend there will be no shortage of things to do in the Blue Mountains.

Head to the Carrington Hotel in Katoomba for the popular ‘Wines of the West’ festival. For only $12 entry, meet growers from the Central West of NSW - Mudgee, Orange and further afield. Have their cellar door come to you all in the one location and enjoy a ‘producers’ tasting plate on the side.

If you are feeling a little more than peckish, pop down the Carrington Hotel’s driveway to the Old City Bank Brasserieon Katoomba Street for some great casual dining – burgers, steak and chips, wood fired pizzas and prawns are all tasty and reasonably priced. The newly launched Katoomba Brewing Company also sell their first brew on tap at the Old City Bank Brasserie, a fine accompaniment to any meal on a hot summer’s afternoon.
