Where you’ll be

Wentworth Falls, New South Wales, Australia

The Blue Mountains is a magical place any time of the year. Glowing in autumn, cool in winter, colourful in spring and refreshing in summer.

Wentworth Falls is a lovely village in the Blue Mountains with beautiful leafy nice streets, lanes and bush tracks to walk in. The small village shopping street has several cafes, restaurants, bakery, pub, take-away pizza and BBQ chicken as well as shops for browsing for gifts and antiques. There is also a chemist, butcher, bottle shop, mini supermarket and post office.

Close by is Wentworth Falls lake and Wentworth Falls waterfall, both beautiful spots for walks and picnics.

Leura and Katoomba are within 10 minutes drive, both with lots of cafes, restaurants, galleries and shops to brows in.

There are so many things to discover in the Blue Mountains.

Love being creative, I'm a bespoke jewellery designer and avid photographer. I am a connector and enjoy the many work and community activities I do, especially if it relates to people and making a difference. I am a tree changer, left corporate life and moved to the Blue Mountains late 2017. I love to explore, I have had many fantastic adventures, and have lots more planned. I enjoy hosting people in my home, on tours and in workshops, spending time getting to know about them and hear about their travel and adventures + sharing my local knowledge and passions. Friends and family are really important to me and what they bring to my life.
