Enjoy the hot tub

Didn't think it was possible to feel so refreshed and reinvigorated in two days.... A & D
The spa relaxed our limbs in a beautiful, relaxing way...and the view, wonderful S & C
What a magnificent view from the spa! C & P

There are few activities as indulgent as reclining in your own indoor hot tub spa while you look down on spectacular scenery, or up into the starry night sky. Combine that with complete uninterrupted seclusion and a glass of champagne in your hand and you're in heaven.

Unlike most jacuzzis or hot tubs that use chlorine to sterilize them, The Peak's hot tubs use an ozone system that keeps the water clean and crystal clear. Thus, there is no odour and the water is gentle on your skin.

Ozone spas also claim to have therapeutic properties, so they are highly recommended when you need to destress and relax.

Please note that the spa does need some TLC from you to remain in optimum condition. If you use massage oils, we ask that you shower before entering the hot tub as the oil can clog the spa filters. Bubble bath oils, soaps or bath bombs also clog the filters so are not permitted.

Recommended temperature for the spa is between 36 degrees and 38 degrees, although you may appreciate a cooler dip during the summer months. If you are pregnant, please also check the recommended temperature with your doctor prior to visiting.

Explore the region

The Peak at Mt Kanimbla is conveniently situated within comfortable driving distance of the Blue Mountains attractions and some of the region's most scenic villages.

Whether you want to go bushwalking along the cliffs looking into the Grose or Jamison valleys before sinking into your hot tub, view the amazing rock formations at the Jenolan Caves or sample wines on a day trip to Mudgee , the choice is yours.

A few suggestions:

  • climb the impressive boulders at Evans Crown, followed by a pub crawl at Tarana and O'Connell pubs
  • visit the wilderness of the Wolgan and Capertee valleys and view the site of the new 6 star Emirates resort
  • visit the Three Sisters in Katoomba and take a ride on the scenic railway and cable car
  • take a picnic lunch to Pulpit Rock at Blackheath for one of the most breathtaking views in the Blue Mountains
  • take the scenic road to Jenolan Caves for a tour and return via Oberon
  • abandon the car and simply walk up to the trig point at the Mt Kanimbla peak for some of the most impressive inland views in the region
  • enjoy the hot tub and contemplate all of the above for next time :-)

Unwind and relax

Immerse yourself in peaceful relaxation

Relax on the balcony and share the spectacular views with native wildlife such as kangaroos, wallabies and eagles. Weather permitting, take a picnic up to the trig point or a leisurely stroll around the 1.5km perimeter of the property.

Sip champagne in your hot tub spa whilst enjoying the panoramic views. Unwind with a massage in your own chalet, or visit the local Japanese bathhouse for some serious pampering.

Put your feet up in front of the cosy fire with your loved one and a glass of wine. Choose from the small selection of books, CDs and DVDs to relax with, or bring your own personal favourites with you.

For the more athletic, your can use The Peak as a base for more serious fitness training. The grueling hills in the Kanimbla Valley have been known to challenge even the fittest. And naturally, the spa is the perfect place to soak those sore muscles afterwards.

Local activities

The Blue Mountains World Heritage Area is an experientialist’s paradise. Extending over one million hectares, it protects some of the most pristine and remote wilderness in the world.

The Peak at Mt Kanimbla is conveniently situated in the centre of this wilderness, with regional highlights in all directions. Whether you enjoy the thrill of adrenalin sports such as canyoning or abseiling, or prefer more demure pursuits such as trout fishing or golfing, a lifetime would not be long enough to discover everything that this inspiring area has to offer.

Your hosts are keen outdoor enthusiasts and are pleased to make suggestions and recommendations for excursions or any of the following activities. Click on the links below for more details:

This information is given in good faith. Guests indulge in their pursuits at their own risk and The Peak at Mt Kanimbla does not accept responsibility.

Bushwalking

There are a vast number of walks and trails in the Blue Mountains with almost as many books and guides written to help you navigate them.

Whether you decide to follow the path of the early explorers from Mt Victoria into the Hartley Valley or transverse one the passes from the Valley of the Waters to Wentworth Falls, walking in the Blue Mountains is a truly magnificent experience.

Your hosts are keen bushwalkers and can recommend a number of walks, both locally and in the surrounding areas. Here is one highly recommended favourite:

    Neates Glen and the Grand Canyon, Blackheath

    This classic walk requires a moderate level of fitness and can take between 2 to 4 hours to complete. It is a 5km circuit that can be accessed from Evans Lookout Road, starting at the Neates Glen picnic area and finishing at the majestic Evans Lookout.
    It is the quintessential Blue Mountains bush walk, including a bit of everything: panoramic views, abundant birdlife, rainforests and ferns, waterfalls and creek crossings, amazing rock formations, deep canyons and even a short tunnel. Don’t forget to wear sensible walking shoes, bring water, food, sun protection, a first aid kit and your camera.

The Mt Kanimbla Dash

Rising over 80 metres in less than 500 metres, the Mt Kanimbla Dash starts at the front entrance to the retreat at Megalong Place and ends at the trig point on the Mt Kanimbla peak. It may not sound that daunting, however very few people have managed to run it without stopping.

The record is currently held by Chris Crowe, who completed the gruelling uphill sprint in just over 2 minutes 32 seconds. Chris credited his remarkable performance to his tough Australian Army training that includes uphill running with an 11kg load on a daily basis. Chris claims he was not in peak condition at the time either!!

The leading times for men are as follows:
2:32:15 Chris Crowe
2:53:46 Matt Brooks
3:14:50 Steve Blyth
3:16:55 Jonn Milroy
3:16:55 Chris Mills
3:18:93 Florian Knoepfel
3:19:10 Mike Rose
3:20:91 Devinder Garcha
3:27:86 Richard Lauder
3:45:99 Andrew Tulloch

The ladies record had been safe for over 3 years, until Pam Kimlin completed the challenge in 3 minutes 39 seconds, shaving almost 50 seconds off the original record. Some other very fit ladies have also attempted the challenge and recorded strong times since Pam's effort.

3:39:96 Pamela Kimlin
4:00:43 Rebecca Kimlin
4:06:67 Rebecca Stewart
4:27:05 Janine Rose
4:45:12 Carina McMurtrie
4:57:98 Angela Mills
5:19:09 Laura Blyth

A special mention goes to Bruce and Carina McMurtie who completed the Mt Kanimbla dash only a week after the birth of their first grand daughter, thus setting the innaugural record for the fastest times by grandparents (times were 4:43 and 4:45 respectively). We suspect that record may stand for a while!

If you're feeling energetic, why not test your stamina and your sanity by taking the Mt Kanimbla challenge during your stay!* Break the current record and you will receive a complimentary bottle of champagne!

*Please note that The Peak at Mt Kanimbla takes no responsibility for any injuries sustained in attempting this difficult challenge. It is recommended that any person attempting the Mt Kanimbla Dash be of above average fitness level and physically sound. Mental soundness may actually be a detriment.
