Peaceful and quiet, Fifth Ave Katoomba Retreat is serene but not remote. With all the true comforts of home, guests return to the house after a day of activities, to rest and relax. Yet all tourist attractions, restaurants and shops are a short drive away.

Guests have the privacy of the whole house to their own group. No sharing with strangers.

Exceptional attention to detail, the house is maintained and cleaned weekly by the owners.

We had such a lovely time exploring many of the waterfalls in the area and then coming back to a warm and cozy house, spending quality time with our family.

It was a fantastic experience. Strongly recommend it. The attention to detail starting from the authentic Italian ingredients to presenting the cooked meal at the table.

About the neighbourhood
Fifth Ave Katoomba Retreat is located within walking distance of the beautiful MinneHaHa Falls. Stroll down the street to a picnic area, and venture down to the Falls ( an all grades walk of about 35 mins).

Always take care when walking in bushland, wear sensible shoes, take drinking water, a hat, and sunscreen. We advise against venturing out too late to ensure you are back before dusk.

Suitable for young children also, but hold them by the hand. We went to the Falls with young children and past guests have gone into the refreshing water.
Getting around
The public bus can be flagged down anywhere along our street, taking you into Katoomba town centre, only 5 minutes away. The train station is at Katoomba, just off the highway where you can leave your car parked in the parking lot.

The Trolley Tours is a hop on / hop off bus that takes you on day trips around Leura and Katoomba for a low cost. They also offer trips out to the Jenolan Caves.
