Nestled between the upper mountain villages of Leura and Katoomba, Harry’s Lookout is ideally located for your mountain retreat. Enjoy a gentle, 12 - 15 minute stroll to Leura Mall and enjoy the many cafes and galleries, or stroll 10 minutes the other way, through parkland and across a stone bridge to all the attractions in Katoomba.

Harry’s Lookout offers charming bush and district views to the rear and a filtered view of Mt Solitary and the Jamison Valley from the front veranda.

The world famous Three Sisters, Scenic Railway & Skyway, Leura Cascades and many lookouts from Cliff Drive are a short distance from your doorstep. The newly renovated Hydro Majestic hotel is only 5 minutes drive away at Medlow Bath where you can be spoilt with High Tea or silver service dinner.

Both Katoomba and Leura are surrounded by the Blue Mountains National Park -- part of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. The back, bush garden at Harrys Lookout is a classified, Tree Preservation Area and we have kept this area as natural as possible to create a real mountains feel. When looking out from the back deck, you will feel you are living in the treetops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal for our big family get together Loved our four day stay at Harry's lookout! King Parrot's on the balcony. Really spacious; nine adults fitted nicely upstairs and downstairs. We had a very comfortable stay; the master bedroom especially was lovely, and the beds made for some very good nights of sleep. Katoomba put on cold enough weather in January to justify getting the fire going, which was lovely. Perfectly situated in between Katoomba and Leura shops; loved the short walks to both. We would definitely come back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great property Large, very comfortable house stocked with everything we needed for a lovely weekend. Location was fantastic - close to everything but when sitting on the back deck overlooking the bush it felt very private.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely and Quiet A cosy stay with a great view. Harry's had great amenities for a group with a separate downstairs studio. A mostly uphill but easy walk to town with plenty of bars, eateries and antiques shops.
