About Mt Victoria

The small charming township of Mt Victoria is located on the western edge of the Blue Mountains. It was originally known as One Tree Hill and can be found on maps created by the Surveyor General, Sir Thomas Mitchell dating back to 1834. The town was named Mt Victoria in 1876 when the post office was constructed. It was named in honour of the young Princess Victoria.

It was a prosperous township in the late 19th Century offering an exclusive private school, and large guesthouses for wealthy Sydney families.

Today the town is heritage listed with many impressive historical buildings to be seen including the old Post Office, the Gatekeeper’s Cottage and the Toll Cottage.

Bush walking
Like many other towns in the Blue Mountains, Mount Victoria provides access to numerous walking tracks including:

  • Mt Piddington walking track, which extends southwards into Fairy Bower Reserve
  • Kanimba Valley Walking Tracks which extend along the cliff line of the Kanimba Valley, taking in Bede's Lookout, Pulpit Rock, Reinitz Pass and Ross Cave
  • Berghofers Pass a 3.2-km return walk considered one of the easiest and most pleasant bush walks in the mountains. It offers lovely views and it is possible to see many of the convict built ramparts that support the Great Western Highway

Places to visit

Historical Museum
Located at the Mount Victoria Railway Station, in the old refreshment rooms, Historical Museum has a wonderful collection of photographs, documents, and local artefacts. The railway station was opened in 1868.

Mount Vic Flicks
Mount Vic Flicks is located in the local community hall. It is worth a visit to step back in history to see how many of our cinemas use to operate. There is no foyer and just a small single person ticket box at the front entrance.

Mount Victoria Toll Keepers Cottage
Built in 1849 it is the only one of several located in the Blue Mountains to have survived. Coaches were charged according to how well they were sprung. Heavy coaches with no springs helped to crush the stones and smooth the road so they were allowed to pass for free. Other coaches with springs were charged one shilling and six pence. Now instead you get to pay tolls on all the major motorways in Sydney.

One Tree Hill
The highest point in the Blue Mountains is located near the intersection of Mt Piddington Rd intersects and Apex Ave. This spot is known as One Tree Hill.

Summer brings warm days with the occasional cool night. The temperature in the mountains ranges from cool and damp on the forest floors to hot and dry on the plateaus. The summer temperature averages 22 degrees.

Autumn is a wonderful time in the Blue Mountains with a magnificent display of autumn leaves.

During winter the region receives the occasional snowfall turning it into a magical winter playground. The temperature at night can drop as low as -8 degrees Celsius and can rise to a maximum of 18 degrees during the day. The average temperature for winter is 10 degrees.
