A Treehouse In the Blue Mountains

About ten minutes out of Blackheath on Hat Hill Road is a dreamy little treehouse.

It’s not fancy or luxurious, but it sure is beautiful. Tucked away behind the property’s main house and through a wild and lovely garden, this cosy little cabin is surrounded by tree tops and has picturesque views across the Grose Valley.

At the back of the cabin is a decked balcony to eat and drink and stare out at the sun or the stars. Should you visit in winter it’s likely a dense mist will surround the cabin making any desire to leave the cosy loft-style bed (accessed by ladder) hard.

There’s a fully equipped kitchen so you don’t have to stray into town to eat – if you come well stocked with food and wine – plus a couch to curl up on and a bookcase full of old books to read. A copy of the book Hippy Hippy Shake reveals the owner of this sweet bolthole to be author and co-founder of Oz magazine Richard Neville.

There’s no TV or internet, so enjoy the time out, and explore the property and some of the great bushwalks nearby, like Pulpit Rock and Anvil Rock.

The hack? You’d be hard pressed to find a lovelier stay in Blackheath, plus it’s amazing to have trails – and views – all to yourself, away from the overwhelming busy public ones nearby.
