Surrounded by the spectacular beauty of the Blue Mountains, the historic village of Katoomba offers easy access to key tourist attractions, including the Three Sisters, Scenic World, the Scenic Railway and a number of invigorating walking trails.
The more adventurous can try abseiling, rock climbing or caving, while those who love wining and dining can explore world-class cafés and restaurants, or visit passionate providores to stock up on everything from award-winning chocolates and locally made jams to regional wines.
The Blue Mountains Cultural Centre is located in the heart of Katoomba, and from the main street you jump on a red double-decker London bus or an historic Trolley bus, which allows you to discover many of the area’s hidden treasures in one day.
The entire region plays host to countless events throughout the year, including the famous Winter Magic Festival, which sees around 40,000 people gathering in Katoomba Street. Along with having the opportunity to see Everglades Historic House and Garden, there are magnificent private gardens to explore during spring at the Leura Gardens Festival and Blackheath Rhododendron Festival – the longest-running event in the Southern Hemisphere!
