We have just returned from a perfect weekend in the Blue Mountains, New South Wales, Australia. We stayed in Mount Victoria, about 20 kilometres west of Katoomba. The local pub, the Imperial Hotel is a reminder of a bygone era of elegance, motoring holidays and steam trains.
We enjoyed a delicious 7 course degustation lunch on Saturday with matching local wines at Nineteen23, Wentworth Falls. The pictures on this page are views from the terrace.
A chilly 17oC this morning was rectified by a friendly and efficient brunch on the way home at Wattle cafe, Blackheath.
Thank you, Trip Advisor for the good tips!
The drive home was surprisingly smooth taking around 1 hour and 40 minutes, we were welcomed back to Sydney by a blue sky and an autumn temperature of 25oC.

Lovely… it certainly feels like Autumn has caught up with us in the Southern Hemisphere, with dropping temps here in SA as well…
Seriously gorgeous photos! Sounds like a blast.
Our travel usually includes good food, wine and company,thank you for your comment.
Looks amazing! This is as near to sunshine as I am going to get in chilly Ireland for quite a while!
I would find living Ireland extremely challenging, the lack of sunshine in England was one of the reasons we gave Australia a go. Even in the middle of Winter Sydney is blessed with blue skies and sunshine. Thank you your comment.
What a wonderful trip you had. Gorgeous Blue Mountains!
Thank you for commenting, I highly recommend a visit if you ever in Sydney. Robert
beautiful country !
