The Best Katoomba Self Contained Accommodation

The Best Katoomba Self Contained Accommodation

Katoomba is located 118km west of Sydney in the magnificent Blue Mountains.  While the most famous view is of the Three Sisters from the easily accessible Echo Point, there are many other experiences available for visitors ranging from luxurious high teas to getting back to nature.

Options include a plethora of bush walks (or hikes) ranging from hours to days in length and partaking of spectacular high tea whilst looking out over the fabulous views.  In addition the great variety of eclectic shops and gourmet cafes and restaurants in Katoomba provide some well deserved luxury time out.

The Best Katoomba Self Contained Accommodation

We regularly book self contained accommodation as our preferred choice – in our case there is a strong argument to have a separate bedroom for our children, as well as the convenience (and cost savings) of preparing many of our own meals.  We also enjoy being able to have more space than the typical hotel room.

Katoomba is a great destination, and below is my guide to the best self contained accommodation in Katoomba to help you find the perfect option to visit the Blue Mountains.
