  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Public transport (train station) is very close. We are situated 25 minutes from Penrith and 30 minutes to Katoomba.

    This place is only 100 meters from the western railway line which takes you to Sydney (East) or further up to Katoomba (west) in the world heritage area.

    We have several cars, and as hosts, would love to show you the highlights of the Blue Mountains.
    Some of the local attractions we will show you are as follows:

    Norman Lindsay Gallery
    Springwood township
    Wentworth Falls
    The Three Sisters in Katoomba
    Blackheath markets

    Both being teachers, Kate is working as a full time high school teacher and Craig has taken time off to finish building the Eco House.

    We hope to host you soon!

    Kind Regards,
    Kate and Craig
