Blackheath's versatile accommodation
When it comes to upmarket accommodation in the Blue Mountains we are spoiled for choice. However, finding low-cost accommodation that also provides good value is a more challenging task. While I've stayed at many different places in the Blue Mountains, I've found that the Blackheath Glen Tourist Park best combines that wonderful Blue Mountains atmosphere with accessibility and a number of options to suit different budgets.


It has a number of self-contained cabins, as well as facilities for caravans: powered, en-suite powered and unpowered sites. The unpowered sites are the most basic, and ideal for people travelling on the cheap who have their own tent. They are comprised simply of a grassy block big enough to erect a tent on. Hire of an unpowered site also includes access to a communal toilet and shower facilities, the camp kitchen, and the coin-operated laundry.

For other guests there are a variety of self-contained air-conditioned cabins that are perfect for a couple up to a small family.

There is a television, DVD player and cooking facilities in each cabin with a good number of utensils, pots and pans.

Bunks and a small writing desk are among the extras in the cabins

The cabins are simple but charming and comfortable, with a small porch, space for a car or caravan beside your cabin and a pretty view of the trees on the grounds.

Blackheath Glen Tourist Park is unique in that it is in a prime location - perfectly balanced between seclusion and accessibility, with the Blackheath Memorial Park on one side and the train station, local pub and shops only 10 minutes walk away.

It is also the closest accommodation to the Pope's Glen walking track that is your on-foot entry point to the Grose Valley - home to some of Blackheath's most spectacular lookouts: Pulpit Rock Lookout and Govett's Leap. It's proximity to the bush makes Blackheath Glen Tourist Park an ideal base for those interested in bush walking and birding.
