Nice place to camp

Old Ford Reserve

Camping is allowed at Old Ford Reserve but it is a small area. The Old Road Reserve is a beautiful picturesque camping site and has a picnic area alongside Megalong Creek in the Megalong Valley. You can enter the Reserve by road. 

 

Megalong Valley is mostly granite country road and the Valley has bird species that are not found on the cliff tops. Old Ford Reserve is about 8.3 kilometres along the Six Foot Track from Katoomba.

Old World experience.

Mount Vic Flicks Step back in time and watch a movie like its 1955.

To get a good view of the Three Sisters visit Echo Point lookout. These three peaks are actually sandstone and are a kilometre above sea level. It is so hard to image that they formed thousands of years ago through erosion.
