Not open all the time?
Through the last couple of years of bushfire, floods, our railway going down either side of Mt Vic (due to bushfires and floods), COVID, roadworks and then more floods, we took the executive decision not to open usual retail hours.
Just knock if you see us there.
Sometimes midweek we can open too. Knock if you see us – if we can let you in to browse, we will!
Local pick up: if you really do want to pick up your order, please email us before making an online order.
Come visit Mt Victoria!
Our village is just 5 mins west of Blackheath and 15 mins west of Katoomba in the beautiful World-Heritage Blue Mountains, NSW. Mount Victoria is a true Victorian heritage-listed village and one of the Blue Mountains best kept secret.
We are the last village as you head west before you drop down via the Victoria Pass into beautiful historic Hartley (also well worth a visit). Mount Victoria is known as the ‘Gateway to the Central West’.
What to do?
Beautiful lookouts and bushwalks: including Mt York, Mt Piddington, Bushrangers Cave, Victoria Falls, Berghofers Pass (dog-friendly) and Sunset Rock. Our walks and lookouts are exceptional, not heaving with tourists, and cater to all levels of fitness.
Cinema: Mount Vic Flicks has been voted Best Regional Cinema for good reason. It’s a blast from the past with homemade choc tops and soups, arthouse cinema and a lovely vintage setting.
Food: whether you want a quick bite and coffee or sit down meal by the fire, we have lovely cafés and restaurants at our hotels here in Mount Victoria.
Shopping: well of course there is Mount Vic and Me… but we also have fun antique shops located around Mt Vic. And just next door there is Robyn Austin who specialises in leadlighting and taxidermy – and hosts workshops in both.
Museum: check out the historic museum located at our incredible sandstone railway station. This is a real experience – there are so many fun finds.
Base yourself in Mount Victoria and discover our local region: As we are situated between Great Western Highway and Bells Line of Road, Mt Victoria makes the perfect place to stay to discover both sides of the Blue Mountains.
‘Unique amongst all the villages…’
“Mount Victoria is unique amongst all of the villages in the City of Blue Mountains. It provides a great deal of evidence of the growth and development of the Blue Mountains with the advent of the railway line during the second half of the nineteenth century and the subsequent consolidation of road transport during the twentieth century. It was a most important railway terminus for many years and a major tourist destination until the era after World War I. These aspects of its past are evident in built items such as the railway station and the large resort hotels that are still visual l landmarks in the town. Its school is historically significant, being the first public school established in the Blue Mountains, and the early date of its post office underlines the importance of the village in the economy of the Blue Mountains at the end of the nineteenth century. The village has great aesthetic significance because of the inter-relationship of its built fabric, placed in a setting characterised by open spaces and extensive stands of mature trees. This distinctive townscape is unlike any other in the Blue Mountains. The vistas presented on Station Street between the Great Western Highway and Montgomery Street are amongst the finest townscapes in the City of Blue Mountains. The approaches to the village are of particular heritage significance because they include very rare examples of the main phases of transport infrastructure associated with the settlement of New South Wales, including one of only two original toll-houses, a representative example of a 19th century railway gate-keepers cottage, the current railway line and facilities for contemporary travellers including vehicle servicing and accommodation in a pattern consistent with the historic development of the area.”
