Hazelbrook shopping centre is well suited to catering for the local community. Featuring a supermarket, Chinese restaurant and several local stores, the town centre has a unqiue community atmosphere. Many Hazelbrook residents regularly commute to Sydney by train.
As you drive west along the Great Western Highway towards Katoomba, the street after the shopping centre is Oaklands Road which leads to the main residential area of Hazelbrook. Not far down Oaklands road you will see a sign to Gloria Park.
Gloria Park is often used for cricket and other sporting activities and also features an athletics oval. You will also find tennis courts and the Hazelbrook Bowling club located at Gloria Park.
There is so much to explore within the bush lands of Hazelbrook. Enter the bush land from Hazelbrook’s Oaklands or Winbourne Roads to discover glorious waterfalls including Burgess, Lena, Lyre Bird and Horseshoe Falls. Further into the Reserve you can discover a natural amphitheatre. Horseshoe Falls is only a 500m walk from Oaklands Road and there is even a picnic table for a rest on the way. A perfect walk for the little ones.
On the opposite side of the railway line enter via Terrace Falls Road where you can walk to Victor Falls, Terrace Falls and Bedford Pool.
