STAY

Take a step back in time by staying at one of Mount Victoria’s historic properties. There are plenty of options for couples, families and solo visitors.
Nestled on the village’s most commanding point, Blue Mountains Manor House was built in 1876 as a summer home for John Fairfax, proprietor of The Sydney Morning Herald. Beautifully appointed in a tranquil setting, the property comprises 13 ensuite rooms and three apartments, with most overlooking the grounds.

Hotel Imperial and Victoria & Albert Guesthouse both provide an old-world experience in the heart of the village, while Closeburn House is a romantic retreat with a lovely garden that attracts birds and kangaroos.

If self-catered cottages sound perfect for your needs, book in at Cedar Lodge Cabins. There are three cabin options – family, double and spa – and they are all set within a charming bushland garden.

SEE

If you love getting into the great outdoors, spend some time taking in Mount Victoria’s natural wonders and looking out for local wildlife. Victoria Falls Lookout offers a commanding view over Victoria Creek and leads down to Silver Cascades – a popular spot for picnicking and cooling off in summer.
Mount Piddington serves up views across Kanimbla Valley, and a drive down Kanimbla Valley Road reveals a series of walking tracks that direct you to Pulpit Rock, Bede’s Lookout, Reinitz Pass and Ross Cave. To enjoy stunning views down to Hartley Valley, head to Mount York – there’s also a monument here dedicated to the early explorers, who arrived at this exact point.

Those looking for a little more action can sign up for a day of abseiling, rockclimbing or canyoning – all exhilarating ways to absorb the beauty of the Blue Mountains. Mount Victoria also offers easy access to historic Hartley, Jenolan Caves, Mount Wilson, Mt Tomah Botanic Gardens, Megalong Valley and Lithgow – all of which offer unique experiences and are perfect for day trips.

DISCOVER

Take a leisurely stroll around Mount Victoria to explore the village’s architectural delights then head to Mount Victoria Cemetery, hidden in the bush about one kilometre east of the village, off Victoria Falls Road. Established in 1881, there are around 50 monuments to see here.
Cinema buffs appreciate Mount Vic Flicks, which has been operating out of the old Public Hall for over 25 years. Considered a regional treasure, the cinema shows an inspired mix of classic, new and arthouse films.

Family members of all ages will also enjoy Imperial Park, once a mini zoo. The concrete picnic shelters and grottos in the park were built in the 1930s and are now being refurbished with murals that reflect Mount Victoria’s settlement history. The First World War memorial here is one of the oldest in the country, dating back to 1916.

There may no longer be animals residing in the park, but Mount Victoria is home to all manner of wildlife. Keep an eye out for native birds, reptiles, kangaroos and the odd wombat. And if you’re heading out west, look for the goats that gather on Victoria Pass!

EXPERIENCE

Unearthing local treasures is an exciting part of any holiday, and Mount Victoria won’t disappoint.
