Right in Bilpin (just 10 minutes from the Cottage) is the great new city- smart restaurant Bilpin Afire. As the name suggests the food is cooked on a wood fired char grill. Boutique beers and cider are on tap and wine is available.
Other great places to eat nearby include fine dining at Lochiel House and the vibrant Bistro at the Archibald Hotel both are at Kurrajong Heights.
Lunch at Mount Tomah Botanic Garden by renowned chef Sean Moran is also very popular.
Mountain Lagoon features many fine walks ranging from an easy stroll to an adventurous hike.
These are detailed in the book “Bushwalks of Mountain Lagoon” which you will find in the Cottage.
Or you can download it here as a pdf file and do some planning before you arrive.
