There's always something special happening in Australia's beautiful Blue Mountains...
St Mount's Boutique Hotel is located within short walking distance of the village of Blackheath , the highest town on the Great Western Highway (1065 metres above sea level). St Mount's is also within a 10 min walk of the railway station.
Blackheath boasts the best scenery in the entire Blue Mountains region with magnificent lookouts such as Govetts Leap and Evans Lookout. It also boasts some of the best bushwalks in the region - The Blue Gum Forest, Popes Glen, and the Grand Canyon walk, just to name a few.
Blackheath is also unique for having two valleys on either side of the township. On the western side is Megalong Valley , famous for its scenery, patches of rainforest, and horse riding trails.
The valley to the east of the township is the Grose Valley with sheer cliff faces, awesome escarpment views and waterfalls.
The village of Blackheath has a charming collection of country style shops, antique and art galleries, and terrific cafes and restaurants.
A visit to Blackheath isn't complete without a trip to the Rhododendron Gardens , Memorial Park and swimming pool. Both of these gardens boast amazing colour when the rhododendrons are flowering (late October/early November).
There are two famous festivals held in Blackheath each year. One is the "Food and Wine With Altitude" Festival held in April/May and the other is the Rhododendron Festival held on the first weekend in November. Both are not to be missed with colourful street parades, yummy food, stunning wines from the region, a carnival atmosphere and lots of local artistic/creative talents on display.
