Where to stay in Katoomba

About Katoomba

The largest town in the Blue Mountains, Katoomba occupies the natural and cultural heart of this scenic New South Wales region. Outdoor adventures greet intrepid travellers, while the town’s pampering day spas, rugged rural landscapes, vintage-style boutiques and rich Indigenous culture offer a diverse range of attractions to explore.

Things to do

Tick off some of Australia’s best natural sights while visiting Katoomba, especially the Three Sisters, a fascinating rock formation best seen from Echo Point. There are numerous lookouts, including Jamison, Wentworth Falls and Princess Rock, which offer one-of-a-kind vistas. If you want to get up close to Wentworth Falls, hike the various walking trails past multiple falls and down to the valley floor.

Capture incredible forest, mountain and valley views with Scenic World, which boasts glass-topped carriages that travel down a 52-degree incline into ancient forests. When you need a break from sightseeing, book a rejuvenating massage or signature treatment at SPA Sublime.

Interested in shopping at Katoomba? Head to Sylph Clothing Designs to purchase Australian-designed women’s clothing, from stylish dresses and glittering accessories to yoga and meditation wear. Follow your sweet tooth to Blue Mountains Chocolate Company, where you can watch chocolate-making demos and buy handmade chocolates, jams and jellies. The nearby Peachtree Antiques offers vintage furnishings and unique retro collectables.

When you need a break, visit the friendly staff at Paragon Cafe, considered one of Australia’s oldest cafes. It’s housed in a beautiful Art Deco building in the centre of Katoomba and serves freshly-baked scones, handmade cakes and signature locally-roasted coffee. Visit at night for a candlelit dinner in the grand banquet hall.

Getting around

Katoomba is an easy 1.5-hour drive from Sydney along the M4 and Great Western Highway. Many of the town’s popular lookouts are within walking distance of each other, but you should hire a car to explore the rest of town and attractions further afield.

    Our favourite kid-friendly day trip is a tour of the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains, where the whole family can hop on the sky-high cableway and see the entire region from a birds-eye view. Being outside and experiencing nature is what Katoomba is all about, so take the kids on an easy hike up to the Katoomba falls near the three sisters. End the walk with a refreshing swim, splashing around in the rock pools, or spend the day walking through the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre, where you will find an art gallery and a library that host different educational and interactive programs, for kids to engage with nature.
