The Megalong Valley is a picturesque valley surrounded by golden coloured escarpments. The Aboriginal meaning of Megalong is ‘Valley under the Rock’. Popular for horse riding, there are a diverse range of trails through scenic bushland.
Explore the Six Foot Track bushwalk, from Katoomba to the Jenolan Caves, there are now self-guided and guided walks along it.
One of the best views of the Megalong Valley is from the Hydro Majestic Hotel at Medlow Bath. The hotel sits on the edge of the escarpment overlooking the valley and its eucalypt forests, spectacular sandstone cliffs.
