What's on in Blaxland, NSW


Blaxland is named after Gregory Blaxland who along with William Wentworth and William Lawson undertook the exploration that first found a route over the Blue Mountains in 1813. Many earlier attempts to cross the mountains with their steep cliffs and escarpments had failed. There are many fabulous attractions and recreational facilities in and around the township of Blaxland and in the surrounding villages of Glenbrook, Mount Riverview and Warrimoo.
