Explore a hidden corner of the world in Blue Mountains National Park. Set in remote wilderness overlooking the Megalong Valley, you’ll find bushwalks and an abundance of native wildlife at your doorstep at Galong cabins.
A cosy getaway for a family or group of friends, there are 2 refurbished cabins that sleep up to 4 people each. You’ll want to snuggle up by the fireplace in winter. After you’ve settled in, it’s time to explore. Discover the World Heritage-listed Kanangra wilderness, take a bushwalk along Six Foot track or go horse riding with one of the schools in the area.
This place is a nature lover’s dream. As you wander, you’ll see the eastern grey kangaroos and red-necked wallabies that call this place home. Keep your camera handy to capture the spectacular views from your cabin as the sun sets over the valley.
If you’re in the mood for something more indulgent, treat yourself to Devonshire tea at the Megalong Valley Tearooms or go wine tasting at the nearby vineyards where you can enjoy magnificent views of the valley.
