Maybe you prefer to visit the Mount Tomah Botanic Gardens (Don’t miss The Potager Cafe at the Botanic Gardens)

Ask Roz Blue Mountains Botanic Garden | Ask Roz

We highly recommend the Potager Pot pies of slow-braised beef rib in a rich red wine jus, the crispy truffle oil baked chat potatoes that come alongside were pretty heavenly too, a very welcome change to the ubiquitous fries.  If you’re heading out to the botanic gardens or elsewhere in Mount Tomah, this is a great option for lunch.

Maybe relax and make a picnic at Leura Cascades. This is a popular picnic area set amidst tall eucalypts. Nearby you can take a walk beside the rapids on Leura Falls Creek down to Bridal Veil Falls and Leura Falls.

Be prepared and plan your walks as several walks can be accessed from here and can either take you along the cliff tops to Echo Point or down through the Leura Forest and via the Federal or Dardanelles Passes to Katoomba. Leura Cascades is the start, or end, of the Prince Henry Cliff Walk. The picnic area is approximately 2.2 kilometres from Leura Railway Station.

 

Maybe enjoy a morning breakfast at Milk Bar at Katoomba

Try their fruit smoothies and fresh warm lemon myrtle doughnuts on your walk along the clifftop.  There’s a restaurant upstairs that has an even better view. The cafe deck did offer a nice respite before the crowds on the Echo Point and three sisters lookouts.

Today you will have your tour to Jenolan Caves.

Jenolan Caves is an underground wonderland, a labyrinth of stalactite-lined limestone caves sculpted by underground rivers. Explore on fantastic guided cave tours. You can also enjoy lunch in the restaurant

Visit Gingerbread House in Katoomba for an afternoon cuppa. They serve a range of meals and snacks here with indoor seating and a sizable outdoor space including a children’s play area. The street art just along from it.

 

After check out from your accommodation, drive to Bilpin where you will find many Apple farms on the way. Stop in one of them and pick your own fruit!

You can choose different farms on the way.
