Great Train Weekend
Held in May because Blaxland, Lawson and Wentworth first crossed the area in May 1813 and in May 1868 the railway arrived in town.
The Great Train Weekend is a very enjoyable and affordable weekend held in a village where you step back in time to the last authentic 19th Century village in the Blue Mountains - Mount Victoria the crossroads of the Blue Mountains.
