How to get here
By road Katoomba is 1.5 - 2 hours from central Sydney along the M4 and the Great Western Highway. It can sometimes be quite busy at weekends so if you are coming up on Saturday or Sunday leave early as you may need the extra .
Trains leave from Sydney Central Railway Station for Katoomba almost every hour. Visit the Transport for NSW website and check-out the timetable for Blue Mountains line. Please note, due to recent heavy rain causing land subsidence, buses are replacing trains from Springwood to Katoomba – Mt Victoria/Lithgow. Please check with Transport for NSW for information about your journey.
Katoomba is a major tourist destination so accommodation and eateries to suit every budget are available. If you are planning to stay in the Blue Mountains for the Festival and need to book accommodation we recommend you make your arrangements well in advance of the Festival weekend.
