It’s the same decision every winter. Hunker down with a pinot and ride out the cooler season, or jet off to Europe and post Grecian beach photos with captions like “Wish you were here.”

Blue Mountains

 

The Blue Mountains are Sydney’s wilderness playground, just 90-minutes from the CBD. On any given weekend you’ll find Lululemon power-walkers hunting desperately for a latte, or family caravans making the winding drive up to Ingar Campground.

We’ve got amazing properties still available at Blue Mountains. Our pick is Invisible House & Mending Wall.

And there are advantages to travelling the Blue Mountains in winter. While Jenolan Caves and other attractions tend to pack out in spring or summer, you can often get them to yourself in the cooler months.

 

Between June and August, the Blue Mountains also have that misty, rain-on-the-window sort of atmosphere. Cafes like Lily’s Pad in Leura, Anonymous in Blackheath or Kickaboom in Glenbrook are all cosy nooks where you can snuggle up with a single origin.

 

When you’re sufficiently caffeinated, it’s time to explore. And this is where things get tricky. There are dozens and dozens of walking tracks to choose from. Our favourites are the classic Three Sisters Walk, the longer Prince Henry Cliff Walk, or Ruined Castle Track near Blackheath. A cave tour at Jenolan is always fun too, especially for the kids.

 

If you have time, check out the famous Blue Mountains Botanic Gardens. A lot of travellers skip this, particularly in winter, which is a real shame. It’s 28 hectares of cool-climate gardens, with panoramic views to boot.
