“Outstanding Location and Excellent Park”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

My wife and I stayed at the Katoomba Falls Tourist Park for four nights with our small rental campervan over 30 December 2013 – 3 January 2014 as we finished a three-week tour of eastern and central NSW to hike in national parks. It is an outstanding facility and we highly recommend it. We reserved our powered ensuite site about six months ahead of time. Without a reservation we would not have had a site due to the popularity of the Blue Mountains area, proximity to Sydney, and the timing of our stay during prime post-Boxing Day holiday travel. In addition to numerous powered sites that use the common washrooms, the park has four ensuite powered sites that are wonderful at AUS$57.00 per night in peak season. Our bathroom was very new, immaculate and clean. Our camping neighbors were a very nice family from the Brisbane area and we enjoyed chatting with them. The park is across the road from several clifftop trails in Blue Mountains NP. One our first full day in Katoomba we walked from our site to the Katoomba Falls area to start on the Prince Henry Cliff Walk towards Echo Point and the Three Sisters. There is a small kiosk/sandwich shop nearby, and bus stops for the hop-on/off tour buses.

Our stay included New Years Eve and we wondered about how much activity there would be. Because of the severe bushfire danger in the region, all fireworks and open fires were completely banned. NYE turned out to be totally quiet at the park, which was fine with us! After sunset we talked down to the trail junction I mentioned earlier since a couple of trails near the road were lighted for a ways. We walked a short ways down a couple of softly lit paved trails and were the only people in that area at the moment.

I can’t say enough good about this park, the great value, outstanding location, cleanliness, and good feelings we had. I highly recommend it but definitely urge advance reservations during the Australia summer as it fills up quickly.

Room Tip: I highly recommend the ensuite powered sites, but there are only four of them. There are many more...

First experience of camping site, clean, spacious, again very helpful people. Too far out of town to walk in so be prepared to move campervan to go shopping or do it first.
Views over the Blue Mountains breathe taking. Great walks be sure to follow valley walk inland to water fall.

We visited Katoomba Falls Tourist Park just before Christmas 2013 and we loved it.

We rented a campervan (2 adults and 2 kids) and stayed on one of the ensuite sites. The bathroom was perfectly clean and in a good condition. The camp kitchen offers some space in case of rain which seemed like a nice touch (we thankfully did not have rain).

The location is perfect for hiking, no need to drive anywhere. It is a great spot for hiking/walking to Kamtoomba falls, to the three sisters and to Scenic World.

A lovely park right at the start of several trails . People were really helpful, so I got washing done with the minimum of fuss. The cabins were modern and well equipped. It's not very near the town, but worth it to be so close to the reason we were there

Room Tip: The cabin we had was very good

Thank you very much for submitting a review about our Tourist Park. We are pleased that the location of the Park was favourable for you. Many of our guests love the fact that they are able to walk across the road and find that they are right on the edge of the escarpment! An enjoyable walk along the Cliff Top takes you on a journey to the Three Sisters and beyond, not forgetting Katoomba Falls and the Scenic World complex that are incredibly close. We know we are biased, but we think that our location is one of the best there is.

We are also pleased that you were able to receive assistance from our friendly team which ensured that your stay with us was a positive one.

Thank you again, and happy travelling.

This park is clean,modern and good location if you don't mind a bit of a hike to town. We had an ensuite site and the washroom was really nice with special touches like a heater which is needed on frosty mornings. Easy walk to scenic world and close to Echo Point and view of three sisters and town but these require some walking up steep hills. We did not mind as some tracks along cliffs and helped to burn off great food!

We spent 2 nights in a Blaxland Cabin at the campsite.

Positives:
We couldn't get there until after reception closed but they left our key with instructions for us so we knew where to get it
Nice and quiet park
Very clean
Had most of the kitchen equipment required for making basic cooked meals
Air conditioning unit with reverse cycle for heat
TV/Large kitchen table/spare room for extra people or bags
Very clean bathroom with powerful (but small) shower
Park is right opposite the walkway to Scenic World
Very friendly and helpful lady on reception
Good price

Negatives (very minor):
First night was cold as we didn't arrive until 7pm so it had not been occupied all day, the second night was perfectly fine as we heated it in the afternoon (we went 10th May)
Nothing to wash up with but a sign in the kitchen asking us to wash up before we left

Overall this place was great and we would definitely go again and recommend it to others. It was a perfect place for a quiet relaxing weekend break.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Blaxland, it had 4 beds (a double and bunks) only the double has bedding but for 2...

Thank you very much for taking the time to review our Park. We were pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and we agree...the Blaxland Cabin is the perfect size for a couple! We were disappointed that you did not mention the oversight regarding dishwashing materials supplied for your cabin until you were departing - we would normally have this supplied in the cupboard underneath the sink, and would have been only too happy to bring it up to the cabin had we been aware that is was not replaced when cleaned prior to your arrival. It would seem rather silly to be asked to clean dishes and not be supplied anything with which to do so! We have also taken on board your comments regarding the cabin being cold when you arrived late in the day. For guests arranging late arrival times during winter we will ensure that the reverse cycle air conditioners are turned on when the reception area is closed. In that way, the chill will have been removed from the air - it does get quite cold here in late Autumn/Winter! Thanks again, and we look forward to seeing you again.

We camped for 3 nights over Easter. The park is in a nice position, close to picnic areas and the walking trails along the escarpment. Scenic world where the railway is is 10 minutes walk, at most. The centre of town is a fair walk away. The campsite was reasonably sized, the facilities were good with camp kitchen and plenty of showers for the size of the park. There was also signs up saying the amenities will be renovated over winter. Staff were friendly and helpful and it was good value compared to some other prices we've paid over Easter at other places. However, Katoomba turned on the weather for us which is not always the case, good luck for us!
