Melaleuca overlooks 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.

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.
