Located just to the west of the Blue Mountains, the Megalong Valley is a picturesque and peaceful destination that's perfect for a relaxing getaway. This stunning valley is surrounded by towering sandstone cliffs, lush greenery, and scenic vistas that are sure to take your breath away.
There are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy in the Megalong Valley, including bushwalking, horseback riding, and mountain biking. You can explore the valley on foot by taking one of the many walking trails that wind through the area.
Feeling energetic and in need of refreshment? If you're up for a challenge, I can recommend embarking on the invigorating 15km hike from Katoomba into the valley. Start by descending Nellies Glen and follow the scenic Six Foot Track as it winds through the valley floor, ultimately leading you to Dryridge Estate Winery. This demanding journey is incredibly rewarding, treating you to panoramic views of the valley and the surrounding escarpment. And don't forget the incentive waiting for you at the end - fine local wines. Final tip: Arrange a cab ride back to Katoomba for a convenient return.
