Faulconbridge

On the middle slopes of the Blue Mountains, Faulconbridge is a great place to break the journey between Sydney and villages higher up the mountains. This charming village is rich with parks and gardens, yet another great reason to linger. 

Celebrated as a painter, illustrator, sculptor and children’s author, Norman Lindsay lived for 56 years at Faulconbridge. His house, the Norman Lindsay Gallery and Museum, and its lovely gardens are crammed with his drawings, paintings and sculptures, a tribute to the breadth and depth of Lindsay’s talents.

Norman Lindsay Gallery - Faulconbridge

The Corridor of Oaks honours the memory of NSW Premier Sir Henry Parkes, the “Father of Federation”.  Since Federation in 1901 every Australian Prime Minister or a close family member has planted an oak tree here. The surrounding parkland is well supplied with seating, shady lawns and statues.

Blue Mountains Walkabout is a guided tour in the company of an Aboriginal guide, departing from Faulconbridge Station. During the six- hour walk you’ll visit Aboriginal rock art sites, sample bush tucker,  experience the deep connection that Aboriginal people maintain with their ancestral land and hear stories of country from someone who has absorbed it through the soles of their feet.

Barely an hour from downtown Sydney, Faulconbridge has a wealth of guesthouses and self-contained cottages that make this an ideal escape. With a number of dining options in Faulconbridge and neighbouring Springwood, bushwalks, shopping and cultural attractions, there’s plenty to do in the area to keep you entertained.
