The best things to do in The Blue Mountains: Your ultimate guide

Our dear friends from Dry Ridge Estate- Emma and Simon prepared their POV how to spend your time in The Blue Mountains if you only have 24 hours. This is your ultimate 2022 guide and the best things to do in the Blue Mountains.

☕️ Grab your morning coffee and brekky on your way through from @kickaboom in the village of Glenbrook at the foot of the Mountains. You can’t look past their smooth specialty coffee, creative food (Reuben Eggs Benny anyone?), delicious vegan cookies, and ultra-cool vibe.⁠

💦Take the exit to Katoomba for a bush walk down to Wentworth Falls for an icy dip and wild swimming experience (if you’re brave), while taking in the beauty of the falls!⁠

🛌 Check-in to your overnighter at the stunning @kyahhotel, located in Blackheath. This brand-new boutique hotel boasts a fresh new look, bringing a touch of old Hollywood glamour and Palm Springs vibes to the Mountains. Did I mention they have pet-friendly rooms?⁠ ⁠

☀️ Why not take the afternoon to explore the glorious Blackheath Lookout? A shot like this is sure to be your most Insta-worthy!⁠

🍸️ For cocktail hour (which can’t be missed), pull up a stool at Blaq, a stunning restaurant located in @kyahhotel. We recommend sipping on their signature Blaq Martini, made using native wattleseed and macadamia liqueur. ⁠

🍴 Book your dinner at the exotic @cinnabarkitchen, located in Blackheath. Experience a delicious journey by travelling the world in one night on the flight of food (your taste buds will thank you).⁠

🍳 Enjoy a hearty Mountains style breakfast and barista-made coffee with @megalongtearooms. Expect friendly service and a generous plate of food in a beautiful Mountains setting.⁠

🍷 Finish your day on a high with us at @dryridgeestate for a beautiful ploughman’s platter lunch and a delicious wine tasting. Enjoy a truly unique experience while overlooking the most breathtaking views over the Megalong Valley!⁠

You can book in here a day or two where you can experience it all⁠
