Summer is quickly coming to an end but there’s still time for a last minute summer escape with the girls. The Blue Mountains offers plenty for a short weekend away or a longer mid-week escape, and at just 90 minutes west of Sydney, it’s easy enough to jump in the car or on the train, and escape from the everyday.
From dining to getting amongst nature, we’ve put together a list of our favourite places to relax.
With so many places to dine in the Blue Mountains, you won’t have trouble finding somewhere suitable for your whole group.
At Mountain Whispers, you’ll receive a full complimentary breakfast for your first night’s stay and our guests love enjoying a late breakfast out on the verandah or patio, listing to the local birds and soaking up the sun. Pick up extra supplies at one of the local supermarkets, cafes or bakeries and this is the perfect place to get your day started.
For lunch and dinner dine at restaurants with a view or simply watch the world go by. Try Lily’s Pad, Pomegrante, The Carrington Hotel, Rubyfruit, Solitary, Echoes Restaurant or The Wintergarden.
Spa & Beauty
There’s no better way to relax with the girls that a pampering session and you don’t even need to leave your Mountain Whispers property to do so. We have a range of pampering packages including massages, facials and more. Our experienced therapists will come to you – enjoy a glass of bubbles and a pampering session without needing to drive anywhere.
For something a little different, check out Blue Mountains Sparadise, a Japanese Garden & Bathhouse just 30 minutes from Katoomba. Other options include Renaissance Spa at the Carrington Hotel, The Spa at Lilianfels and Villa Thalgo in Windsor.
If there’s anything the Blue Mountains are known for, its the natural beauty of the Blue Mountains National Park, and with walks and lookouts close to our Mountain Whispers properties, you won’t need to go far. From The Gatsby its just a short walk to Katoomba Falls, the Prince Henry Cliff Walk, Cliff View Lookout, the Three Sisters, Spooners Lookout and Dardenelles Pass Loop Walking Track.
Around the Blue Mountains region you’ll find lookouts, waterfalls and walking tracks, as well as picnic spots to help you reconnect with nature.
You can’t come to the Blue Mountains without doing a touch of shopping. The region is home to a number of antique and vintage shops as well as artist studios, photography studios, artisans and more. Pop in to Moontree, Josophan’s Fine Chocolates, Leura Vintage, The Old Bank Bazaar and Christine’s Millinery for some interesting and one-of a kind items to take home.
