Sir Henry Parkes, the father of Australia’s Federation, was buried in Faulconbridge. After Federation, every Australian prime minister, or a family representative, has the honour of planting an oak tree in the beautiful Corridor of Oaks at Faulconbridge.

Faulconbridge is a charming Blue Mountains village, one of a string of townships along the Great Western Highway. Just 75 km from Sydney, Faulconbridge has many varied attractions, including Sir Henry Parkes grave, the Prime Ministers’ Corridor of Oaks and the Norman Lindsay Gallery.
Any visit to Faulconbridge should include a visit to the Norman Lindsay Gallery to admire the paintings and sculptures of this much-loved local. Lindsay is also the author of classic children’s book The Magic Pudding.
Speaking of magical desserts, Lindsay’s Cafe features cakes, biscuits and more, along with coffees and teas, in a relaxed setting with both indoor and outdoor dining options.
Faulconbridge has many pretty parks and gardens as well as walks, such as the Victoria Walking Track, which takes you to Clarinda Falls in Blue Mountains National Park. Explore by day, and by night, cosy up in one of Faulconbridge’s inviting accommodation options.
The charming neighbouring village of Springwood is just up the road and well worth a stop, too.
