Start the day the right way in the heart of Glenbrook at the 2773 Café. Named after the postcode that owners Shane and Belinda love so much, this family-friendly location is nestled in the mountains for the perfect recharge or morning tea stop. With live entertainment on the weekends and woodfire pizza to enjoy, you’ll find it’s also a great place to stop for lunch too.
If you’re looking for a beautiful lunch spot, then Echoes Restaurant is the place to be. With panoramic views of Jamison Valley whilst you dine it’s surprisingly relaxing whilst you feel like you’re at the edge of the world. Serving fresh local produce with an Asian influence menu, you get to enjoy magical views and delicious food all at once.
Exactly what it says on the tin, Scenic World has a variety of options depending on your preferences. Including the world’s steepest passenger railway and Scenic Cableway so you can take to the skies to enjoy the World Heritage-listed landscape. For those who prefer to travel by their own feet, there are also Kilometres of elevated rainforest boardwalks to enjoy.
You can’t travel to the Blue Mountains without taking a photo stop at Echo Point to see the Three Sisters. The stunningly historical sandstone peaks are a place of special cultural significance to the aboriginal people as well as providing views of the magnificent Jamison Valley. If you have time, the three sisters walk is between 25-45 minutes.
Feeling thirsty during the day? Why not enjoy a glass of sparkling wine or French champagne (since you don’t have to worry about driving with our hire driver and car) at the iconic Hydro Majestic hotel and spa? For the perfect treat at this historical setting, stop into the onsite Wintergarden restaurant for high tea whilst overlooking the Megalong Valley.
If you’re looking for art, cultural heritage, literature, and a little (or a lot) of controversy we can head over to Faulconbridge to see the Norman Lindsay Gallery and Museum. Not only is there a beautiful sculpture garden, you can also enjoy the rich history of artist and author Norman Lindsay’s sandstone home he shared with his wife and children. Plus, you can learn about his banned 1930’s novel Redheap and his other ‘blasphemous’ works.
Take an afternoon tea stop at the Bunker Café where you can enjoy quality locally sourced food, with a casual community atmosphere. As a picturesque setting amidst the historic building and beautiful garden wine bar, no one would blame you if you wanted to stay for a drink or two.
For the animal, or reptile, lovers the Featherdale Wildlife Park has amazing private encounters you can book to feed the kangaroos, crocodiles, koalas, and quokkas. As a home to over 260 different species of Australian native animals it has one of the largest collections of koalas in NSW as well as 3 large open space enclosures for wallabies and kangaroos.
