It’s back! The Scenic Railway rides again

The April school holidays will give you a great chance to say hello to the new Scenic Railway – with track upgrades and all-new carriages, in the familiar drop-into-the-unknown experience that’s made the former mining railway a Blue Mountains faviourite. More information here.

Cool nights – and mulled wine!

February and March is a glorious time in the Blue Mountains, with pleasant days and cool nights offering the best of both worlds. While the rest of the State swelters, enjoy perfectly civilised average maximum temperatures of 20-22ºC, ideal whether your passion is bushwalking, exploring the region’s gardens, sampling or picking fresh regional produce of exploring antique and vintage stores in the Mountains’ villages .

Meanwhile, overnight temperatures drop to 11-13ºC, just right for curling up under the doona or even enjoying our cottages’ slow combustion stoves.

Mulled wine, anyone? Just ask, and we’ll put a Herbie’s mulling wine spice pack in your cottage – at no charge.
