Nature getaways in Katoomba and surrounds

A guided bushwalk is a great way to learn about the area's geological history, wildlife and native forests and plants.
One of the best ways to enjoy the grandeur of the area is on the Scenic World Skyway as it travels across the Jamison Valley.

Cool-climate gardens come alive during spring and autumn - don't miss the pretty Everglades Garden at Leura and the Norman Lindsay gallery and gardens at Springwood.
