We ended up staying here by accident. A last minute dash to the Blue Mountains one weekend had us driving towards our intended camp site low on food and water. After checking the website and realising how remote it was, a change of plan was needed. We headed for the nearest town, still a good 45 minute drive away and ended up in Blackheath.
The town itself is a short strip of art galleries, antique shops and cafes in the middle of the Blue Mountains. Once we’d stocked up on supplies we decided the drive back into the middle of nowhere in fading light was less then appealing so we fired up Google Maps and saw we were right next to Blackheath Glen Holiday Park.
That will do!
It’s a great little campsite. Walking distance to the town, but far enough away to have some incredible star gazing from the side of the van. The toilet block was really clean and the water was very hot! The kitchen area even had washing up liquid and sponges provided. They had the usual electric BBQs and shaded areas for the hotter months.
For exploring the surrounding area, this is a great base. The walk to Hanging Rock started 5 minutes up the road and Govetts Leap was close by. If you’re willing to brave the crowds, Katoomba is only a 15 minute drive South.
