Sitting at the summit of the Blue Mountains, Blackheath is a little village and an excellent starting point for exploring the Blue Mountains National Park. In town, you’ll find a choice of guesthouses available, perfect to set yourself up in for a few nights and explore the surrounding area.

Blackheath is well connected to Govett’s Leap and Evan’s Lookout, worth visiting for the best views across Grose Valley. Take a wander along these walking paths and through the valley, which will lead you to Edenderry and Hilary Falls. Stop by at Evans Lookout to have a picnic in the designated sheltered area. Here you’ll find some of the most incredible views, and as it's an easy walk it's well worth the reward. From Walls Cave Road, experience Aboriginal history with Walls Cave that was once occupied around 12,000 years ago. Start your Blue Mountains experience at Blackheath in this quaint little country town, which is well connected to the national park and a comfortable place to begin.
