About the neighbourhood
The Gatsby is a luxurious, self-contained art deco cottage for one to three couples in Katoomba. Stroll to Echo Point and Scenic World. Perfectly located only minutes to the world heritage escarpments of The Blue Mountains. The Gatsby is perfectly located just a 10 minute walk to the town centre or a short 5 minute walk to Echo Point and The Three Sisters. The Gatsby is the perfect spot whether it be for a spot of golf, exploring nature or Scenic World rides over the stunning Jamison Valley - the choice is yours.
Getting around
Best way to see all the local attractions and to get around for the duration of your stay is the Blue Mountains Explorer Bus (a red London double decker bus) which allows you to hop-on and hop-off for the duration of your stay. Get a real bird's eye view of the Blue Mountains whilst sitting on the second level - a beautiful experience complete with commentary. There are 31 stops around the villages of Leura and Katoomba so you can pick up the bus at every major location.
