Mount Wilson and Mount Irvine
Mount Wilson is a heritage garden village only two hours from Sydney. The area has magnificent bushland and rainforest, walks and canyons as well as historic houses and grand exotic gardens, some of which are open to the public.
Mount Irvine is about 15 minutes further drive. It has a rural mountain setting of farms and fine gardens, with magnificent views over the mountains.
There are public toilets at Silva Plana (as you enter Mount Wilson), the Fire Station, Founders Corner, Waterfall Reserve and Cathedral Reserve.
Barbecue facilities are available at Cathedral Reserve, however, please bring your own drinking water as the villages use tank water.
There are many pleasant strolls around the villages. If you attempt a more ambitious walk in the National Park, please be aware that weather conditions can change rapidly. EPIRB or similar equipment is also strongly recommended.
Mobile phones DO NOT work in most areas.
