There is so much to do in the Blue Mountains...

 one day just isn't enough!



We often have guests extend their bookings when they arrive as they want to experience more of what's on offer.. and that's usually just the most popular walks that we tell them about..the tip of the iceberg. Sometimes it's not possible to extend when you arrive as we are already booked out. Don't have to miss out - extend your stay now! 


We are of course happy to answer any specific questions before or during your stay - just ask us.

One of the most popular things people come to the Blue Mountains for is the extensive network of bushwalks. 

We can help you plan the best walks for you when you come to stay.  We also have books for our guests to borrow during their stay and free maps. There are options for all fitness levels - even if it's just taking more time to get through all the stairs!

A great way to explore the Mountains!

Mountain Biking

Many people come to the Mountains with the misconception that Jenolan Caves is closer to Katoomba. The Caves are about 1.5 hours' drive from Katoomba. If you don't have your own car, there is only one option for you and that is CDC Tours who have a daily trip that leaves from outside The Carrington Hotel at 1030am and doesn't get back until 5pm. In that time, you can get a maximum of two cave tours, as the set tour times need to be worked into the bus leaves for the return trip at 3.30pm. 

If you self drive then you have more flexibility of course. We can also book the Cave tours, and give you a 5% discount when we book direct.

Jenolan Caves

Definitely worth a visit if you can spare the time!

The vast array of flora is beautifully laid out on 28 hectares within a World Heritage Area and is focused on the conservation of cool climate plants.   Maybe buy a Waratah, and chill out while having coffee.

Located 45 mins drive from No. 14 Lovel St, a visit to the garden will make you feel a world away.
