A visit to Blackheath is not complete unless you stay in Autumn and we here at Blue Mountains Escapes believe one of the BEST times is just when the leaves on the trees are turning a mottled shade of crimson red with hints of gold.
Possible one of the most photographed streets in Blackheath has to be Wentworth Street, lined with its magnificent Liquid Amber trees, it is the mountains personified. With amateur and professional photographers alike aiming for that one perfect shot that will capture the essence of this quaint village. Or for the avid walkers it’s a chance to take a stroll in the morning mist along paths strewn with fallen leaves that crunch under foot as you walk along. Doesn’t that make you want to jump in the car and head here?
With the Autumn days in Blackheath mostly warm and the evenings bringing a slight crispness to the air it is a great time to embark on those longer bush walks or simply enjoy an evening stroll to the local eateries in Blackheath on dusk for dinner.
Looking for more to do? Day trips abound and one that is a must see, especially in Autumn, is the Blue Mountains Botanic Gardens. Located in Mount Tomah just a 37 minute drive from Blackheath, the gardens are open every day except Christmas Day. Monday – Friday: 9.00 am – 5.30 pm. Saturday, Sunday and public holidays: 9.30 am – 5.30 pm and Entry is free. The Gardens have lovely picnic areas with free electric barbecues and there’s plenty of space for large or small outdoor gatherings around the gardens. If you prefer something less energetic and more sophisticated than a BBQ, also on the grounds is the ‘One Hat’ Tomah Gardens Restaurant which offers delicious dining with glorious views of Wollemi National Park. With so many things to do in the Blue Mountains why wouldn’t you book a breakaway!
