Blackheath, a Blue Mountain Beauty


Located near the top of the Blue Mountains, Blackheath is a popular holiday destination for all those people who visit New South Wales in search of natural beauty. It resembles a lot of beautiful Scottish villages, especially on misty days when the clouds cover the mountains.

This is a nice holiday destination because it has everything that will turn your visit into a memorable outing. The combination of a busy shopping centre, extensive automotive facilities surrounding Centennial Glen and Megalong Valley, cafes, restaurants, bookshops, and a variety of holiday accommodation make it a must visit place for all.


Things to See and Do:


With a variety of holiday apartments and houses available in Blackheath, you won’t have trouble selecting one. However, you’re advised to book earlier to avoid dealing with any hassle and securing your preferred option. Once you have resolved the accommodation issue, the next thing is to have a clue of what to see and what to do in Blackheath. Here are a few suggestions for you to consider. Blue Mountains National Park is a nice attraction for those with an interest in wildlife. Covering over 247,000 hectares, the park will give you a chance to enjoy amazing wildlife and world famous scenery. It also contains the area called Glenbrook, which offers attractive scenic picnic areas, camping areas, swimming holes, and aboriginal cultural sites.

Govett’s Leap Lookout also deserves a visit. Just as you visit there, you realize why exactly it is considered one of the most popular vistas of this area. It provides you with a gorgeous view of Govetts & Grose Gorge, which can be compared to any top-class natural attraction found in another part of the world.

For people interested in fine arts, a visit to the Hat Hill Gallery is sure to bring a lot of joy. The setting of this gallery is an attraction in itself; it’s located in a printing factory from the 1920s. Here, you will also find some the creative pieces of artists like Cate Dudley, Jenny Kee, Viken Minassian and Andrew Ireland.

For people interested in outdoor activities, there are quite a few sports grounds and golf courses. You can find the Blackheath Golf Course on Brightlands Avenue. Similarly, you will find a variety of tennis courts, sports grounds, bowling clubs and swimming pools down Prince George and Leichhardt Streets.

Blackheath Craft Market is always popular. This is a perfect place for someone who loves to shop for crafts, folk arts, toys and more. You will also find places to enjoy light meals while exploring the market.


When to Visit:


Since it’s the highest town in the Blue Mountains, you’re sure to witness snowfall in winter although, it’s insufficient to make this a winter sports resort. Even in summer, the temperature is generally on the lower side. In winter, the temperature usually stays between 9°C to 10°C.

As far as the best time to visit Blackheath is concerned, there is no set rule. Although it’s regarded a winter destination, Blackheath witnesses visitors all year round. It all depends on what you want to do when you come here. If you love to indulge in outdoor activities, you may want to plan your visit in summer time – that is –from December to February. This is when the days are bearable, and you can witness different events as well. The Sculpture at Scenic World is an exhibition for a true outdoor enthusiast.

To take part in different festivals, you should come in winters – from June to August. This is the time when several events take place in Blue Mountains. If you come in November, you can be a part of Blackheath's Annual Rhododendron Festival. Luckily, holiday rentals are available all year round; therefore, you can plan things as per your interest.


Flying From UK to Blackheath:


Blackheath is about 120km from Sydney and no more than 11km from Katoomba. Therefore, the best idea would be to catch a flight from UK to Sydney. You can fly from London Heathrow Airport to Sydney Airport with Qantas, British Airways and Virgin Atlantic. You can then opt for a rental car or train; it takes almost two hours to get to Blackheath by Car, whereas trains usually take 133 minutes to get to Blackheath. It’s worth mentioning that Newcastle Williamtown Airport is about 172km from Blackheath, so opting for this Airport could be another alternative.

It is quiet, comfortable and well appointed - a real home from home. You can tell how much I love the place - I've been coming to stay for decades - at least once a year and sometimes more often when work allowed.

And a bonus for a mad cat lover missing her own moggies was the cats (which only come to visit if invited, for those non-cat lovers (poor things)). I did find the road traffic a bit noisy as I'm not used to it - but then I'm lucky to live in rural peace on 120 acres miles from the nearest public road! For anyone used to city life it would no doubt be considered very quiet!
