Blackheath is an historic and quaint upper mountain village in the world heritage national park of Australia's Blue Mountains. It is a one and a half hours drive from Sydney and a trip into another world.
The village is sophisticated having some of the best restaurants in the Mountains, galleries, antique shops, cafés and bakeries, yet it retains that Aussie "laid back" character for which it is famous. The area is home to wonderful bushwalks, ranging from gentle strolls to the most challenging in the Mountains.
See fantastic waterfalls and awesome views, superb wildflowers and native fauna! Canoeing, abseiling, horse riding, mountain biking are all possible, as well as a round of golf at the picturesque and challenging Blackheath Golf Course. Beautiful gardens abound and there are many sites of historical interest. You may just want to sit back, relax and drink in the cool, green and peaceful ambience of this very special part of the world.
