Cliff Drive is a name with much promise. But interestingly, like Sublime Point Road, also starts with a golf course. In the distance you can see the chimney at the Carrington Hotel, a Katoomba landmark. It's a relic of the power station that brought electricity to the town 100 years ago,

Leura is where the more expensive real estate in mountains is located -- high fences, locked gates, tantalising driveways and a solid wall of vegetation hiding the sweeping views that I know are just over that rise. Big gardens with hired help and signs on the gate saying "bore water in use" or "tank water" to stop us getting upset at them using water during drought.
Some of the gardens show during the Leura Garden Festival in spring if you want a chance to glimpse behind the walls.

It was a glorious sunny Autumn day on Sunday so the perfect opportunity top choose a new road to walk. This time we are in the up-market village of Leura and walking Sublime Point Road -- who could not want to walk a road with a name like that.
It is a longish starting with Fairmont Resort and Leura Golf Club at one end.

It's a long road and at the end of the bitumen there is a further 5 kilometre of dirt track to go which ends at Anvil Rock and the Wind Eroded Rock. We didn't drive out there this time even though it is one of the easiest tracks in the mountains to see great views. Click the links above to see them.

We were in Blackheath to follow our next road that beckons ... in this case Hat Hill Road.
At the top of the road where it intersects with the highway there is the Blackheath gardens. Here we found the only 'hats' on this adventure.
