Situated near the highest point of the Blue Mountains is the beautiful little village of Medlow Bath. The village has an altitude of 1,050 m and is located approximately 115 km west of the Sydney central business district between the towns of Katoomba and Blackheath. At the 2011 census, Medlow Bath had a population of 517 people.
The Great Western Highway will take you through the town and at the site of the Hydro Majestic Hotel you can experience some amazing views down through the Megalong Valley and out into the wilderness of the Kanangra Boyd National Park.
The Hydro Majestic Hotel
Without the Hydro Majestic Hotel, Medlow Bath would be virtually unknown. Opening in 1904 as a Hydro therapeutic Spa and Luxury retreat the hotel has had inconsistent success. The new owners have recently spent $30 million on a refurbishment and as a result the hotel has been brought back to life. It is worth a visit just to enjoy the ambiance and the views out over the Megalong Valley. The Hotel offers High Tea, lunch at the Boiler Room restaurant, dinner in the main dining room or a glass of wine in “The Cats Alley”are available.
Medlow Bath Park
200m down the road from Synonymous Cafe you will find the Medlow Bath Park. The park is dog friendly and and has a well established garden with some great play equipment for children. The park also hosts a full size hard surfaced tennis court that is in pretty good condition and open to the public. You will need to take your own racquets and balls. It is a great place to enjoy a take away coffee or one of the very tasty toasted sandwiches from Synonymous.
