Blackheath (postcode: 2785) is an Australian town located near the highest point of the Blue Mountains, between Katoomba and Mount Victoria in New South Wales. The town’s altitude is about 1,065 metres (3,494 ft) AHD and it is located about 120 kilometres west north-west of the Sydney central business district, 11 kilometres north-west of Katoomba, and about 30 kilometres south-east of Lithgow.
Blackheath has a vibrant artistic community and hosts two monthly markets and The Blackheath Community Market as well as annual Christmas markets, antique markets and bi-monthly craft markets. The town has many community activities, such as the Blackheath Philosophy Forum which was founded in 2002 to arrange public discussion forums on philosophy and related topics.
As Blackheath has grown, more and more shops have appeared. Various shops from the late 1800s still stand in Blackheath.
From Blackheath town centre, a short drive to the east northeast takes visitors to Govetts Leap, a lookout with views of the Grose Valley and nearby waterfalls. The fall is named after William Romaine Govett, an assistant to the Surveyor General at the time, who first came upon that spot in June 1831. The name ‘leap’ is an old Scottish word meaning waterfall or cascade. According to folklore, a bushranger named Govett rode off the cliff rather than be captured. This story is not verified by historical sources.
Evans Lookout provides an alternate vantage point for views, also into Grose Valley. Pulpit Rock, Perrys Lookdown and Anvil Rock are other lookouts to the north northeast of the town centre, off Hat Hill Road. There are several walking tracks starting from the lookouts, including short walks to enjoy different views, longer half and whole day walks, and walks involving camping overnight or several days walk. Canyoners and rockclimbers also base themselves at Blackheath for activities in the surrounding national park. The Blue Gum Forest may be accessed from Perrys Lookdown.
Blackheath was connected to the Main Western railway line in 1869, and the town is now served by the Blackheath railway stationlocated on the Blue Mountains Line.
The Great Western Highway is the main road access route, through the town’s main business district. To the northwest of Blackheath, at Mount Victoria, the Darling Causeway connects the Great Western Highway to the Bells Line of Road at Bell.
