My love affair with the Blue Mountains, NSW started in December 2012. My boyfriend and I took a last minute deal to get away after Christmas (because who doesn't need a break after Christmas Day!) Our getaway was a combination of hot days, cool mountain nights, local nectarine trees and parrots - I was sold.

But what really stood out for me was a visit to the Everglades Historic House and Gardens. For Art Deco 1930's lovers, this heritage treasure from an era of style is a must-see.

Stroll through the undulating gardens and creeks that surround the house. Features such as the Grotto Pool and the Lookout, which is a stunning view over the Gordon Falls and Jamison Valley, make the visitor ponder about the interesting people that helped create such a wonderful property.

And luckily for curious minds, a visit to the historic house reveals fascinating details of significant people in the Everglades history. Enjoy tea and freshly baked cake from the house Tea Rooms and learn about the original owner Henri Van de Velde and architect Paul Sorensen.
