  • Nice place,but a little bit far from sydney. We would like to come back in autumn.
  • What a delightful find!!! We came across this place when we visited the Jenolan Caves. It is about an hour drive from Katoomba but definitely worth the drive no matter what season it is. Obviously it would be more pleasant to the eyes during spring/summer where plants and flowers flourish. However, the beauty and hard work can be seen even at Winter times. We did the walk and it was just under 3 hours. Returned to the cafe at the end of the walk and had a few amazing meals. Compliments to the chef on everything we had, pumpkin soup, lamb ragu pasta and kids cheese and bacon pasta. One of the best meals we have had in a cafe in a long time. Wish we lived close so we could come back to try other meals. Anyways, maybe next time :)
