Street Art Walk

The Street Art Walk was founded by local resident Dave Riley who suggested painting murals in the local laneway to Street Art Murals Australia’s founder, Jarrod Wheatley. Eighteen months later, the Street Art Walk was born.

This community-driven cultural treasure of the Blue Mountains is on Beverly Place, and displays high-quality art from international, national and local artists, with all the murals being temporary in nature.

This charming bookstore has a huge selection, from sci-fi to out-of-print books, just waiting to be read. 

You’ll undoubtedly be impressed with the selection on offer in Mr Pickwicks, so take the opportunity to stop by and pick up a rare second-hand book or two.

Bilpin Cider Co

Whether you want to have a picnic or create your own case of cider, Bilpin Cider Co is the place to go. The farm is set on four hectares and overlooks the Blue Mountains, making it a brilliant place to stop for a picnic. Along with the apple orchard, the farm is home to sheep and alpacas, which provide great entertainment for children.

The garden is a delight regardless of the season, with azaleas in bloom in spring and roses and hydrangeas featuring in summer. 

You can pick up picnic hampers or build your own case of cider at the shop which is open from 10am until 4pm, Monday to Sunday every day, excluding Christmas Day.

Everything you see at the Blackheath Growers Market is sourced direct from the farm to your plate so everything is fresh.
