Mount Victoria is the most westerly township in the Blue Mountains - 120 kilometres from Sydney and 1043 metres above sea-level.
It is a small but very charming historic village that was originally named 'One Tree Hill' and shows on a map dating back to 1834 - the name wasn't changed until 1876 when the first Post Office was built.
There are a large number of historic buildings, including the Imperial Hotel (1878), St Peter's Church of England (1874), The Manor House, built by John Fairfax in 1876 and the Toll Keepers Cottage (1849).
In Mount Victoria and close by you have Victoria Falls, Victoria Pass, Mt York, Bede's, Sunset Rock & Mitchell's Ridge Look-outs, beautiful Bushwalks and the Mount Victoria Historical Museum.
Some of the Historic buildings are now beautiful 1st class accommodation facilities and combined with their fine food and our other restaurants this makes staying in Mount Victoria another must for your 'Top of the Mountains' adventure
