By turning left at Blackheath Railway and following the 10km of winding country road that passes through a rainforest oasis you enter the Megalong Valley, a hidden gem. Looking across the horse paddocks and gum trees and back up the escarpment there’s the Hydro Majestic Hotel straddling the clifftop. At the moment it’s closed but there’s great views of it from the Megalong Valley Tea Rooms.

  

After looking for Waratahs through the bush at Blackheath, it was a welcome break to sit among the country style grounds of the Tea Rooms and watch the world go by. Well actually, most visitors were also heading for the Tea Rooms. If you listen carefully, you could hear the blue wrens nearby, or the noisy currawongs.

  

Country hospitality abounds with oodles of home made jam, cream and 3 scones. Don’t the scones look a bit like the 3 sisters? The scones were very light and crusty on the outside. The generous helpings and man sized scones always appeal to our male family members.

  

After looking for waratahs, visiting Evans Lookout & Govett’s Leap at Blackheath as well as the Explorer’s Tree and the HydroMajestic along the way, we were starving so it was quite late when we left the Megalong Tea Rooms. Which means there’s plenty more to tell next time.
