The natural beauty of the Megalong Valley allows any visitor to unwind. The aboriginal word Megalong means ‘valley below the cliffs’, (yet another Blue Mountains town with an Aboriginal name).

The fabulous Cox’s River passes through the valley, and it’s via this river in 1818, Thomas Jones was believed to be the first European visitor to the area. Thomas Jones ventured into the valley to explore its natural vegetation.

On your journey into the valley you will be captured by Mermaids Glen and Coachwood Glen.

Megalong Valley hosts one of the Blue Mountains best picnic grounds at the Old Ford Reserve which is located along Megalong Road by the Megalong Creek.

Within the Valley you will find an old steam engine which was once used at the Carrington Hotel in Katoomba. An old shack, Huntling Lodge, can also be seen at the base of the cliffs which was once owned by the developer of the Hydro Majestic Hotel, Mr Mark Foy.

Megalong Valley is an ideal escape from the rest of the world, especially for those who wish to experience Australian bush land, horse riding adventures, and accommodation to suit.
