Whether you’ve lived in Mount Victoria for a long time or newly arrived – welcome! This website is for the Mt Victoria community and we aim to share information, emergency service contacts, local businesses and a way to connect with locals.

Visit our charming Victorian village at the edge of the Blue Mountains. Explore the trails, ridges and gorges under big skies and starry nights. We have fab local food, art, historic houses, gardens, museums, cycling, walking, adventure happenings and antiques all here in Mount Victoria.


Mount Victoria Community Association has applied for a grant of $30,000 to install a sculpture trail in the Memorial Park, the historic park in the middle of Mount Victoria along the Highway.

This is a project that has been on the community’s wish list for several years now and we would love to realise the dream.

It is proposed that the sculptures would be metal cut-outs mounted on sandstone plinths with a plaque to describe its significance.

The sculptures will depict our history in the form of the three explorers, a steam train, a man with a donkey (standing where the zoo once lived), a little girl with a hoop and so on.

Local artist Kara Cooper has the designs ready and council have given initial approval.

The gifting of the grant depends on how many votes we get, so we are calling on you all to get behind the project and send in your vote.

You will need to be registered with MyGov and voting closes on 15 August.

So, let’s do this – please vote for our project and add to the historical significance of our beautiful village precinct.
