Hotel search

Blue Mountains accommodation options range from cozy cottages and guesthouses to self-catering heritage homes and luxury eco resorts. The towns of Katoomba, Leura, Blackheath, and Lithgow have the most dining, and shopping. In other enclaves, you may be limited to where you can eat out, or have to rely on meals provided by your hosts.

Katoomba - Leura

 

Katoomba is the gateway to the Blue Mountains National Park and the railways, cableways, and walkways of Scenic World. Bustling and characterful, it is the Blue Mountains' largest town. Next door to Katoomba is Leura. This elegant village is famous for vintage stores, art and craft galleries, restaurants, and manicured gardens

 

From luxury retreats and grand dames, to cozy cabins and backpacker hostels, accommodation at Katoomba and Leura caters to a diverse range of visitors. Whether you choose to sleep in a basic room or a behind your own private glass lookout, homespun hospitality reigns.

Blackheath

 

This hill station, positioned on the cusp of the Blue Mountains National Park and Megalong Valley, is the highest in the Blue Mountains. A stay here will soothe your soul with pristine air, or you can indulge in Blackheath's restaurants and charming boutiques. Many are housed behind period storefronts, and day-trippers keep weekends in Blackheath buzzing.

 

Accommodation here is diverse, from simple and functional motels and guesthouses to pretty country cottages and retreats. They all have at least one thing in common; a getaway-from-it-all stay in a tranquil mountaintop setting.

Lithgow

 

Lithgow is a former mining town with a well-preserved architectural heritage. It's also a gateway to some of the Blue Mountains' most important natural wonders, such as the Jenolan Caves and Wollemi National Park. Lithgow feels slightly more workaday than other towns such a Katoomba and Leura, and has a good selection of shops and amenities.

 

Historic homes, cozy cottages and cabins, functional motels, and rural resorts make up Lithgow's accommodation selection. Stay in the heart of town, or take time out in the peaceful cabins, lodges and luxury retreats found in the surrounding countryside and townships.
