Blackheath

4.5
World heritage site · Lookouts · Outdoor Activities
Located near the highest point of the Blue Mountains, Blackheath offers panoramic views of the surrounding area. A collection of walking trails lead to various vantage points. The nearby Blue Gum Forest is known for its colorful blooms, and the area hosts a Rhododendron Festival every year. The town takes its name from a quote of one of Australia's notable explorers: "This place having a black wild appearance I have this day named it Black-Heath." The town houses quiet mountain cafes, small boutiques, and shops selling outdoor gear for mountain sports. Charming hotels, bed and breakfasts, and lodges in the town's center provide accommodation for weary hikers. Add Blackheath and other destinations to your itinerary using our Australia road trip planner, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
