BLACKHEATH

Get to know
the area

Hauntingly beautiful, Blackheath is surrounded by the incredible World Heritage Blue Mountains National Park. It is a place where adventurers rest their weary legs and creatives perfect their art. Where time slows down, and colourful gardens shine bright. Leafy green streets, a charming village and cosy cottages aplenty, Blackheath is a true gem of the Blue Mountains.

Lifestyle

Sitting at the highest point in the Blue Mountains, Blackheath is humble yet utterly alluring. Beautiful stone and weatherboard houses, green leafy streets and a village that’s defined by its small-town hospitality. The gateway to Megalong Valley and surrounded by the World Heritage Blue Mountains National Park, Blackheath is a stunning place to live. 

One of the towns biggest drawcards is its access to numerous hikes – from a few hours to overnight – and a variety of rock formations for climbers to conquer. Govetts Leap and Evans Lookout have impressive views across Grose Valley, and off the well-worn tourist trail, Hargraves Lookout over Megalong Valley is beautiful at sunrise and sunset.

 

At the top of Govetts Leap Road in Blackheath village, is a selection of cafes, pubs and shops, housed in buildings that date back to the late 1800s. The pick of the bunch is Bakehouse on Wentworth, renowned for their sourdough and gourmet pies, perfect before browsing through Victory Theatre Antique Centre. And for a dose of fresh local produce, the popular Blackheath Growers Market is held on the second Sunday of each month.

 

The changing seasons are a crowd pleaser - golden foliage in autumn, snow in winter and daffodils in spring. Blackheath is also well-known for its cool climate gardens, and no other draws a crowd as much as the Campbell Rhododendron Gardens, 18.5 hectares of flowers sitting beneath a canopy of native Australian bush – a highlight of the annual Rhododendron Festival.

 

With so much natural beauty and wildlife around you, it’s easy to feel worlds away from it all, but Blackheath is well-connected with regular train services to Katoomba, Penrith and Sydney.
