Specialty Shops


The Blue Mountains is unique in being a residential area within a World Heritage-listed wilderness; and our beautiful towns and villages are an attraction in their own right, cute, charming and historic, and brimming with shopping opportunities.

Our local businesses are representative of the overriding Blue Mountains spirit – creative, innovative and utilising natural resources.

Buying Blue Mountains-made products usually means buying fresh, regional and handcrafted – and what better souvenir to take home as a memento of a wonderful holiday than something created locally, made from love? For a wide variety of regional produce and locally-crafted products, check out the Pavilion at The Hydro Majestic; or sate your appetite at Carrington Cellars & Deli, where you'll not only find excellent wines from the Central Ranges, but also local cheeses, good coffee and even craft beer.

Arguably the most popular village for tourists is Leura, its cherry blossom-lined main street full of quirky homeware stores, antique shops, boutique clothing and craft shops as well as cafés and restaurants.

Don’t miss Josophans – its hand-crafted Fair Trade chocolates ooze with fresh delights, all created on the premises; or enjoy the seasonal colours at the nursery and gift shop, Birches of Leura.

Meanwhile, in our ‘Big Smoke’ of Katoomba – easily accessed on the 'hop-on hop-off' Explorer Bus – you’ll find countless specialty shops, including The Hattery – home of Akubra - and The Source, where going green has never been easier.

So open your wallets, and support our local, creative businesses!
