Warrimoo (formerly Karabah) is a medium-sized village in the lower Blue Mountains of New South Wales, Australia, 273 metres above sea level. The state government’s electorate is Blue Mountains and the state member is Labor’s Trisha Lee Doyle.
Federally, the electorate is Macquarie and the federal member is Labor’s Susan Templeman. Warrimoo is located 75 kilometres west of Sydney, in the local government area of the City of Blue Mountains. Local council Mayor is Labor’s Mark Greenhill. Warrimoo borders the townships/suburbs of Blaxland, Mount Riverview, Sun Valley and Valley Heights. The suburb is 5 train stops from Penrithand 11 train stops to Katoomba.
Warrimoo railway station is on the Blue Mountains Line of the NSW TrainLink intercity network. Warrimoo is also serviced by bus through Blue Mountains Transit and uber. The original 1918 Warrimoo station burnt down in a bushfire in the 1950s and was subsequently rebuilt. A decision by the NSW Liberal government to buy new South Korean made trains has resulted in controversy over Warrimoo’s train station which may need renovating to accommodate the trains that are up to 205 metres long. Added to that, the train tracks may also need adjusting. Western Sydney Airport is due to open in 2026 with a train link via Parramatta.
The Florabella Pass Track is a popular and scenic nature walk from Warrimoo into Blaxland and passes through abundant foliage, creeks and rare wildlife. The bush walk leads into a thick rainforest filled with Lyrebirds, Flame Robins, Sulphur-Crested Cockatoos, Gang Gang Cockatoos, Owls and other rare species. The Pippas Pass portion of the track is renowned for its colourful bushland such as flannel flowers, Waratah plants and pink angophoras and its shelter caves. The walk is less than 9 km however involves some steep hiking. There are many other bushwalking tracks. The Wilderness Society and other environmental groups encourage koala sightings to be reported due to their endangered existence.
Warrimoo is an Aboriginal word meaning eagle’s nest or place of the screaming white bird.
In 1898, a railway station platform named Karabah (meaning ‘large garden’ in Armenian) was built in the area to service a developing estate, possibly sharing the same name. It had closed before World War I, but in 1918 a new station was built, not much further down the Blue Mountains line, named Warrimoo. Entrepreneur and developer, Arthur Rickard was behind the development of Warrimoo. His plan was to subdivide blocks so there were a mixture of small blocks and larger blocks which he established to promote sustainable living. On what was known as the Warrimoo Estate, Rickard encouraged residents to develop orchards, vegetable gardens and raise chickens. Warrimoo retains many historical homes and buildings throughout the village including a distillery (where the local public school now sits) and a former ‘Bordillo’. Charity worker and gospeller George Ardill, moved to Warrimoo in his latter years. He lived at 13 Florabella rd. During his years there, Ardill built numerous homes along Florabella st and The Avenue which he set up for homeless women and children.
