"Neighbours actually talk to you, help you, offer to lend you their stuff...happily!"

Close to; Blackheath and Leura arts, cafes, delis. The only place left 2 hours from Sydney where you can buy acreage and a spacious home! I dont understand why anyone would buy in Bowral when you can live in this paradise. The gob smacking escarpment views will take your breath away, especially at sunset. This area is unique, a valley with views to the villages of the Blue Mountains. A modern base (helicopter for transport if needed) hospital close by in Lithgow for those unexpected emergencies. Great high school/ private schools in the villages or Mount Victoria Public School. Locally enjoy the great selection of plants at the nursery and the adjoining tea house has fantastic scones. The local restaurant does an amazing ploughman's lunch by the fire or alfresco looking at the horse paddocks in summer. The only problem I have is leaving the place, when I have to.
Pros
  • 2 hours from Sydney
  • 45 mins from Bathurst
  • Peace and quiet, friendly locals
Cons
  • bush fire risk if you are deep into the bush, choose a semi-cleared block
  • Where's the public transport? - need a car
  • Having to leave to visit the big smoke
Recommended for
  • Professionals
  • Families with kids
