About Mt Tomah

Mt Tomah is small village with a unique character located on the Bells Line of Road between Berambing and Mt Wilson.

The Blue Mountains were first crossed by the famous explorers Blaxland, Wentworth and Lawson in 1813. Prior to this in 1804 George Caley set out along a different route to attempt to cross the mountains. George Caley was a plant collector and reached an area in the Blue Mountains that he named ‘Fern Tree Hill’ after all the soft ferns located here. Later this location was renamed ‘Mount Tomah’.
