Katoomba

The centre of the Blue Mountains

Katoomba is the chief town of the City of Blue Mountains in New South Wales, Australia and the administrative headquarters of Blue Mountains City Council. Katoomba is approximately 1030 metres above sea level and is situated on the Great Western Highway, 110 kilometres West of Sydney. In Aboriginal language, ‘Ka-toom-ba’ means “shining falling water" and takes its name from a waterfall that drops into the Jamison Valley below.


The site is well known for spectacular mountain views and extensive bush and nature walks in the surrounding Blue Mountains range.
