Blue Mountains Accommodation & Tourism Association Official Website

Fresh air builds an appetite and the area offers a comprehensive menu of dining options from fine restaurants, beaut brunch spots and delectable delis to casual cafes. Actually it’s not just the air that makes the food taste better and the wine taste sweeter. It’s the legion of highly trained local and international chefs and the fresh produce from nearby farms, orchards, rivers and streams.


Food, wine and coffee-shop conversation are as integral as rock climbing and bushwalking. Whether you want fine à la carte restaurants with stunning views, local organic produce or bakeries stuffed with sweet delights, the Blue Mountains is the place to go.


Katoomba and surrounds is also immensely proud of its Cittaslow status — one of only two regions in the Southern Hemisphere recognised as such by the Italian originated Slow Food movement. Cittaslow (pronounced “CHITTA-slow”) towns take the time to identify what is important and special about that town and its surrounding area and put in place strategies to preserve their unique qualities, making life better for everyone.
