Melaleuca is a delightful older-style cottage, set in a mountain garden, overlooking the sandstone bluffs of Shipley plateau, bushland reserve and the Kanimbla valley.

It sleeps six, with a queen size bedroom, a double bedroom and a third bedroom with bunks - with electric blankets, doonas and pillows on all the beds. For infants there is a cot. Please see the images section for Melaleuca’s floor plan.


There is a sitting room with open fireplace and a separate dining room. A modern gas space heater provides warmth to the entire house.

The dining room opens to a spacious sundeck with superb, uninterrupted views.

The bathroom includes a bath and shower, and there is unlimited hot water.

The kitchen is equipped with refrigerator, electric stove with ceramic cooktop, microwave and dishwasher.

There is a DVD player, and digital satellite television ensures clear reception of commercial and public channels. There are board games and lots of holiday reading.

Please note: Melaleuca is comfortably furnished, well maintained and clean, but it is an older property. That means a few cracks and crevices, a bit of dust, the occasional friendly spider. If your preference is for something immaculate you may wish to look at newer build properties.

For other guests’ comfort, Melaleuca is STRICTLY NO PETS

What can you do there?

Some of the most beautiful walks in the Blue Mountains start near Blackheath.

Melaleuca overlooks the start of the Centennial Glen and Porter's Pass walks, which take you into a secluded valley by waterfalls, through rainforest and eucalyptus forest, down a gorge full of fresh water pools and around the sandstone cliffs that tower over the Kanimbla Valley.

More ambitious treks into the Grose Valley start a 10 minute drive away on the other side of Blackheath.

There is abundant wildlife in the vicinity of Melaleuca. Yellow-tailed black cockatoos frequent the area, as well as wedge-tailed eagles, kangaroos and many types of lizard.

There are many gift shops, art galleries and antique shops at Blackheath, including the converted Victory Theatre, which has multiple outlets within a vast space. A wonderful and inexpensive cafe is attached.

Within a half-hour drive you can reach:

Horse-riding at Centennial Glen stables


The iconic view of the Three Sisters at Katoomba

The Imax cinema at Katoomba

Old style picture house "Mount Vic Flicks"

The beautiful Megalong Valley

Japanese Bathhouse near Hartley

Jenolan Caves makes a feasible day trip - at just over an hour away from Melaleuca.

Food and drink

There is plenty of good food available at Blackheath village, ten minutes walk away from Melaleuca.

Escarpment is a small well-priced tapas bar

The Blackheath Patisserie has excellent sourdough breads.

For pies and cakes try the Bakehouse on Wentworth.

Anonymous makes the best coffee in the village.

Blackheath has two pubs. The Gardners arms, on the highway at the western end of the village, has a good selection of pies, steaks and other hot food.

All provisions can be bought locally from Blackheath village, which features two supermarkets, greengrocer, butcher and delicatessen shops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quaint and Cute Had a wonderful weekend away here with friends. Loved the balcony and the view. A little rustic yes but for the price it was fantastic value. Lots of birds visiting the balcony too which was just lovely

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quaint cottage with beautiful views! The house is perfect for 2 couples or a family with 2 small children. The view cannot be beaten, sitting on the deck in the sun was the perfect relaxing way to spend the day, followed by sitting indoors by the fire in the evening. The house could do with a lick of paint, but at the same time, that kind of added to the charm. Close to Blackheath markets and also some spots for nice walks in the mountains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Mountains Cottage We had a very enjoyable stay at the cottage. It was neat, tidy and comfortable, within walking distance to Blackheath shops, where we found a number of very pleasant coffee shops.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simply lovely Melaleuca Lodge was a lovely place to stay with plenty of cottage charm. It was well equipped with everything we needed. The house was lovely and warm once you got the fire and the powerful gas heater going. The shower was excellent also. Good location, close to lots of good cafes and restaurants.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Character cottage Our family of six spent two nights at Melaleuca Cottage. The cottage is small but quaint, with many character features. The bathroom is new and the rest of the house is original but cosy. The cottage would have received a higher score if there was greater attention paid to detail-the griller door on the oven was broken and hung down, the back door was very difficult to open and there was quite a bit of dust collecting. The one oven tray also did not fit into n the oven. The bird seed for the visiting parrots was a lovely touch though, and the location is stunning.
