Megalong Valley

A lush, green paradise of forests and pastures, the Megalong Valley is a classic slice of Australian bushland. It’s a great place to enjoy a walk or a horse ride, and both the Blue Mountains Horse Riding Adventure Tours and Euroka Homestead and Farm Cottage have mounts for riders of all abilities for its wilderness riding trails. 

Amble along the Six Foot Track, a historic and classic long-distance walking track which treats the walker to some of its best as it winds through the Megalong Valley between Katoomba and the Jenolan Caves.

Megalong Valley - Blue Mountains National Park

As an alternative to this three-day walk, the section from Megalong Valley Road down to the Coxs River and back is a satisfying alternative, a five-hour walk through gorgeous bush and farmland to a swing bridge over the river.

Surrounded by the towering sandstone cliffs of the escarpment, Dryridge Estate is a stunning boutique vineyard in the Blue Mountains. Planted with Riesling, Pinot Gris and Shiraz grapes, this boutique vineyard pioneered viticulture in the Blue Mountains are its vines are tended and picked by hand.
