Nestled at the terminus of the railway line in the Blue Mountains, Mt Victoria enjoys a history waiting to be explored. Her story connects back to the days of the Sydney colony marked by road networks, but with the arrival of the “Iron Horse” – the steam train in 1868, a village would soon grow.
Soon Sydneysiders were able to travel in comfort to the “Top of the Mountain” to enjoy the fresh air and mountain vistas. The Village grew and prospered through the Victorian and Edwardian period prior to the Great War.
Join Mountains Tales for a leisurely, two-hour stroll covering 1.5 km as we delve into the history of Mt Victoria. During this time, we’ll journey back to colonial times, unravelling the origins of the village and immersing ourselves in the tales of holidaymakers and the locals who considered Mt Victoria their home.
Our tour ends in the heart of the village giving you time to enjoy a wonderful lunch, the unique shops or explore more, as visitors have for over 150 years.
