Your family vacation becomes a point of contention every year simply because everyone’s got a different idea of what and where it should be held. Going abroad has become much too expensive and travelling in the past with three kids in tow hasn’t exactly been stress-free. This time around, you want everyone to have a good time — and that includes considering the needs of grandma and grandpa, should they want to tag along. You’ll be able to find blissful days ahead along with thrilling times at a family accommodation Blue Mountains provide.
From the west side of the Hawkesbury Nepean River to the Coxs River, the Blue Mountains is a breathtaking region filled with spectacular sights that include a sandstone plateau, mountain ranges, limestone caves, and a World Heritage Site that’s home to seven national parks and a conservation area, where some 400 different species of animals can be found. The mountainous region borders Sydney’s metropolitan area and it’s just two hours away, so this paradise is easily accessible.
In the Blue Mountains, you and your family needn’t stray too far from home to get the best vacation you can ever have because along with capturing panoramic views and picturesque villages, your family will get plenty of opportunities for thrilling fun from numerous attractions. There are engaging walkabout and eco tours, electrifying adventures with rock climbing or canyoning, and even serene moments for fishing. Indeed, Blue Mountains offer a wealth of fun and relaxation for everyone in the family.
And when it comes to combining both in a lovely setting, Bilpin Springs Lodge is an excellent choice. Picture lush gardens, charming apple orchards, and ponies grazing. The almost seemingly poetic pastoral setting gives way to a number of activities that your family can enjoy.
The kids can take on canoeing, visit with the farm animals, play basketball or enjoy the playground and the trampoline. Meanwhile you and your other half (and the grandparents) can relax at the spa, take in a game of golf or go horse riding nearby. As a family you can all engage in some fun fruit picking or take in the views via the world’s first steepest cable car with an Electro-Scenic glass floor. Afterwards you can either have a bite at the revolving restaurant where you can gaze at Katoomba’s famed rock formation, The Three Sisters or head back to Bilpin Springs for an outdoor barbecue.
Having been recently rated 3.5 stars by AAA, Bilpin Springs lodge is also one of the best small conference venues The Blue Mountains can provide. The Lodge is perfect for annual company meetings, team building events, company trainings, and other corporate activities – your own private corporate getaway
